CTC#65 Valentine's Day. Spreading some Timeless Texture love

Welcome back again to the CTC Sunday bloghop. It's February and Valentines day is just around the corner, so that is the focus for our showcase this week. Jump on board and cruise around the hop, and feel free to create a card using the theme and enter our Monthly Challenge. You can use inspiration from any of the challenges for the month of February and link it up at the CTC site here.

There are a whole suite of beautiful Valentine's based products in the new Catalogue. Especially if you love Pink! But I have taken a different colour theme this week. I have to admit that I didn't use any specific card as inspiration but just went with the theme.

I don't particularly hold with the US tradition of Valentine's cards, only because I think an "I Love You" card should be given when the mood arises and not on a specific date. That being said, we probably don't say it often enough and I really enjoyed making this one.
I have used the gorgeous Timeless Textures stampset and Bermuda Bay ink with Rose Red. 
If you haven't tried the Timeless Textures yet you are going to be amazed at what you can create with this set. It's gorgeous. This is similar to one of the layouts my ladies played with at my Catalogue Launch, and they all loved it.

The circle of stars and dots behind the hearts and the sentiment is from one of my 'go-to' sets for sentiments All Boxed Up. I used the Stampin' Write Marker to change alter it to suit. The 2 hearts are rimmed with Dazzling Diamonds this time- wink of Stella just wasn't quite strong enough for this one.
I love the sparkling ribbon and the little embellishment is tied on with silver thread. It was quite quick to make.

I hope you are inspired to try using this set, the possibilities are endless.
Next on the hop this week is Monique. Enjoy your week and I hope Valentines' Day sees you spoilt with love too.
