Kitchen Sink Monday - After Christmas Sale



With today being the finally day to take advantage of the 20% savings during the After Christmas Sale at Kitchen Sink Stamps, I thought it would be a good time to show off some of my favorite flowers to use for creating Valentines! The pansy reminds me of the floral Valentine postcards I love  from the turn of the century!

This card features a small pansy from the 3 Step Pansy set. This set features beautiful pansies in four sizes. I have used the second smallest blossom which is about 1 inch in diameter on this card.

  16. This is SO pretty. I like the heart with embossing, flower, color combo and background but what really makes this card is that lacy border punch.
