S&S Sketch Challenge 43

Have you all recovered yet from blog hopping?  I know I'm still jumping back in there and looking at some of the great cards a second time over.   My card I'm about to share with you is for the S&S Sketch Challenge 43.  I actually made 2 because I didn't like the first and wanted to try another stamp..just more love for our troops to send home!

Here's the one I like.
I organized my box of stamps only to find that I do own one Valentine stamp.  The birds were a $1 stamp by Inkadinkadoo and the heart paper was a find at Target last year.  The ribbon and rhinestones are from Michaels and the cardstocks are from Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Melon Mambo and Whisper White)  The image was also my attempt to water color..I actually messed up and it turned out pretty good if I do say so.  I used Glossy Accents on the hearts.

Here's the one that I just didn't Love as much.
It's not terrible but I thought I could do better.  I guess we are all our own biggest critic. 

Enjoy your week!
