Here's a place where I share my "Scrapportunities" or opportunities to scrapbook, make cards, or do other crafts!

Since I was running around crazy before Christmas and didn't get many cards made, I thought I'd start early for some Valentine's Day cards. For my first one, I thought I'd use the sketch over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog. You can find it and the current challenge here.
I used my brand new Peachy Keen Stamps, PKSC-13 January 2013, the January stamps of the month for the chocolates and the sentiment. I stamped them in Stampin' Up!'s Primrose Petals ink first, then I stamped them with Memento Black onto brown paper and embossed the swirls with Ranger's Seafoam White embossing powder. The I cut out the centers and popped them up for dimension.
I used a new Echo Park paper--Love Story by Lori Whitlock for my background and some Bazzill scraps for the rest. A classic sentiment for a Valentine card . . .
I had to add a few blingy gems from Studio G to accent, then I used a little tulle to tie around it and popped up the whole card front with foam tape.
I'll need to make a few more and a run to the store for --you guessed it-- chocolate! And I'll be ready to wish my friends a Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
