Non-Traditional Color Valentine's Day Card

Hi Everyone,
I am still making Valentine's Day cards. I just realized that Valentine's day is only five days away and I do not have one card in the mail yet. Got to get busy!! I have been experimenting with tissue paper. I love the look of the stamped image on tissue. I stamped a bunch of images and will be sharing those projects with you over the next several days. Today's card uses the Stampsmith stamp "Love Under the Stars" and is available in the Stampsmith Shop. This is a Design Team card for the Stampsmith Design blog. Check it out for lots of great ideas.
I used a yummy blue and brown color scheme. CS: brown; Blue from Bazzill. DP: Basic Grey. Butterfly border and Love sticker from Basic Grey. I stamped the image on white tissue paper with black dye ink. A Spellbinders die was used to cut the layers. I added a wide sheer white ribbon and silver pearls for accents.

And here is a little peak at the inside...the sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.

A few Lovely Challenges:
