Valentine for my Guy! PPA and Paper Players Entry

I decided to go ahead and make my husband's Valentine's Day Card. After getting the beautiful glimmer paper from SU! I saw that the big box craft store had the same paper in a variety of different and fabulous colours - so I immediately bought a bunch. The lattice is cut from black glimmer paper and is really striking in real life. I am also pleased with the contrast of textures on this card; I like that it has flash and sparkle, but still maintains its masculinity. Click on over to these fabulous challenges for plenty of inspiration: PPA and Paper Players. TFL.

Happy Stamping,
