The border on my card was created with the new CTMH Triangle Border Punch and a strip of Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape.
There is still time for you to enter the challenge this week, here is the sketch and a link to their blog.
For Nico's 8th birthday I choose a PML card from the Later Sk8r pack and used the Doodled Designs Flair stamp set & the Have a Happy Day stamp set with the Arrows washi tape to complete the card front.
The PML card at the bottom left corner of my photo is what the card looked like before I added the stamping.

February 14th was declared Valentine’s Day at the end of the fifth century to honor a martyred priest, but what’s the connection between a celibate clergyman and romance? Some say it’s because the priest, Valentine, defended the cause of love by performing marriage rites for young soldiers who were forbidden to marry by Roman law. Some say the date for celebrating St. Valentine was chosen in order to “Christianize” a pagan fertility holiday.
Since the middles ages, however, Valentine’s Day has been unequivocally connected to the idea of romantic love. After taking hold in Europe, the holiday as we know it expanded to the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Australia. Now, one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, which makes it the second-most card-sendingest holiday on the calendar!
