Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Click here to see the wonderful artwork, Star Gazer Lilies, my daughter sketched for me for Valentine's Day.

Created this Gift Card Holder Valentine in non-traditional Valentine colors (not using red or pink) and a Bee is perfect since colors are black & yellow. The gift card complements the non-traditional colors as well.

Used Christmas (yes this is Christmas, bought at Hobby Lobby in after Christmas sale 80% off) Classic Kraft for base. Embossed honeycomb on white cardstock, Used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on embossing. Stamped Bee. Added Enamel accents, liquid Pearls & stickles. Added ribbon.

Used Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge for Hexagon shape (pg66 Border Shift) for gift card holder. The George and Basic Shapes cartridge is my go to cartridge for shapes but it did not have a hexagon. Glad I had the CTMH cartridges. Used yellow vellum to put the gift card in.
