Try It Out Tuesday #4

For Susana's stores DT challenge this week we were to create a Valentine Card using a stamp from Susana's store that isn't necessarily Valentine-ish. Extra credit if we use scrappers floss-you know I love extra credit!! (ACK!! But then I got my card done and realized I had forgotten it, drat!)
Be sure to check out the store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see all the other DT members cards.
And be sure to check out Susana's Store for lots of fun!! Give-aways, new products, brand new stamp lines coming soon and all kinds of goodies!!
I had lots of ideas for this challenge as really so many of the stamps in Susana's store are so versatile but finally settled on Fairy Kids With Birds. To me it had that vintage type Valentine feel to it, although I don't do "vintage" well so here's my version~~



I "popped" two of the flowers up for some dimension.

Here you can see the shimmerz and stickles!



Ignore my thumb....stickles were still wet so I had to hold it to photograph it! LOL!

We'd love to have you play along! Just leave a comment with a link to your creation or if you upload it to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword TIOT4.

Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2/x/4 1/4
stamps: Fairy Kids with birds, TAC Hedgehog Blocks-retired, Hero Arts Heart Border
paper: Georgia Pacific, cardstock,
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette French Lilac
others: prismacolors, OMS, stickles, shimmerz, Light Pink Dress It Uppetals, cuttlebug d'vine swirl embossing folder,
