Paper Players #129 and Colour Q #172

I'm back with another post! I had a quick crafty session this afternoon, but I whipped out three cards and felt much better. A little Sunday afternoon nap and then crafting is a pretty good day in my book.

I combined the Paper Players sketch and the colors from Colour Q this week.

I felt like some of my patterned paper from this fall's Flirty CTMH kit went great with this color scheme. I decided to make a not-so-traditional Valentine's card. I {heart} doing that for Christmas, so why not give it a whirl now?

I matted the white panel with a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper, but all other supplies are CTMH. Grey wool cardstock, Flirty patterned paper, Tulip ink, stamps (Art Philosophy collection and Affection set), Grey Wool ink, gray pearls and pink button. The gray twine is Doodlebug Design. I got really wild and wooly and tied the whole card up with some raffia I bought to put on packages. I like the somewhat-eclectic look that it gave the whole thing. A little outside my normal M.O. mixing the patterns (dots AND printed paper), but I really like it. 

Thank you for visiting. I hope you had a good weekend and an even better week ahead of you!
