Valentine's Paisleys

I've decided to send Valentines to the Family this year, and, surprisingly, find myself in need of more cards. Instead of just making a bunch of cards, I like the individuality that making them for challenges brings. So here's a little number, possibly for Dad, inspired by a sketch, a color combo, and a sentiment theme. The emboss-resist technique was invaluable in making the "Beloved" sentiment with the background paisleys.

Color Dare #93: Regal Rose, Pacific Point, Pink Pirouette
CPS Sketch #202
Aud Sentiments Challenge #20:
Love theme

Supplies: Recollections & Core'dinations cardstocks, ColorBox liquid chalks, Fiskars papercutter & corner punch, ZipDry glue, MS detailing scissors & border punch, Xyron sticker machine, MeltArt clear embossing powder, Marvy heat tool, sentiment silicon stamp from stash, single paisley rubber stamp by Stampabilities, triple paisley rubber stamp by All Night Media
