Fitting everything on the 6 1/2 X 5" card was a challenge, only because I want to use up some of my stash. I used Busy Scrapper's solution Birthday papers (HOTP 4120) & also some tags from HOTP 4146 Dots & Stripes. The stamped images are not Paper Wishes.

A Valentine Cluster
The card is a pocket card I saw on a blog, and I just HAD to make it. But I also had to find a way to add a gift card. The pocket insert was too small, so I used the new Pocket template to create a pocket behind the large focal (which I downloaded for free from Inside Scoop). Pretty much everything is PW, except the solid card stock. I am having trouble uploading... keep getting bumped out of the internet... will try again tomorrow. Frustrating.

Great Card, Rhonda! I really like all the retro images and the color combo.

My Valentine... There is a lot going on in a small space, but the layering corresponds.

Well shoot! My scanner decided to quit working. I had to download and install new drivers. Oh well, that's what I get for procrastinating. I missed the deadline, but here's my card anyway.

I love how the perfect pearls stand out against the black card stock. I started out with embossing powder, but even with the fine detail powder, it wasn't detailed enough. It looks better when the butterfly is not being flattened by a scanner. I REALLY need to find the USB cable for my camera!!

Materials List:
Sunshine and Shadows paper pack
Sunshine and Shadows free download
Heartfelt Greetings stamp set
Botanicals stamp set
Gold glimmer paper
Gold jewel border dazzles

Pick A Pocket template

Linda, I love your card! You did a great job with the layering and keeping it balanced. I had a tough time balancing this one.
