KURETAKE Valentine Challenge!

I didn't think I was able to enter but after dinner, I finished up my take on KURETAKE's first blog challenge. The theme is Valentine's. But as you know, it was yesterday so I thought I'd make mine a shaped thank you card to my sweet hubby for the LOVEly Valentine's dinner :)

Valentine's Thank You Card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: WorldWin Papers; Stamp: Stampendous; Dies and Craft Foils: Spellbinders (LF-190 Grand Labels Four, S4-324 Ribbon Banners, F-001 Red Premium Craft Foil and Hearts - Retired); Markers: Stampin' Write/Stampin' Up (KURETAKE) Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever)

Everything you see "ink"-wise is all from the KURETAKE's marker...from the edging of each die cut TO the stamped image TO "Thank You!" TO the brown coloring rubbed into the foil hearts. For the edging, I used my Spellbinders die templates as a stencil after embossing each die cut. The stamped image was inked with the brush tip of the marker which turned out so nice!

I kept the colors neutral to keep it masculine. What do you think?

Don't forget about my Spellbinders Giveaway (scroll down to the end) - you have until this Friday, the 17th at 11:59PM (U.S. Central Standard Time)!!

Thanks for stopping in!
