PPA 126 and Paper Players 77: New Memory Box Dies ... I think I am in Love!

Hello Stampers,
I have just discovered Memory Box dies and am in love. The range of designs, their intricacy and the ease with which they cut make them a must have. Much to my delight, my local craft store here in Ottawa - Heather's Stamping Haven - now carries them! I used the arboscello tree to make this card. It follows the Pals Paper Arts colour challenge this week: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, and Very Vanilla. Since I knew it was going to be a valentine, and since the colour "models" on the PPA blog have red lipstick, I felt adding a touch of red wasn't really breaking the rules! It also fits the theme challenge on the Paper Players Blog this week: All You Need is Love. To create the shadow for the tree, I first cut it out in NQN, and then in BBreeze and layered the two. The little heart is from the two-step owl punch. Be sure to stop by PPA and Paper Players to check the amazing designs. Tell me what you think!

Happy Stamping,
