Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Today I have a card to share for our current Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge to use 3 layers.

This card uses the new set from The {Stamps} of Life called messages4friends.  I love the sentiments in this set, perfect for making a set of cards for friends.  This sentiment I thought would work awesome with the all4stars set, creating my own background paper from my new favorite color combination (bright pink, grey and celery).  Love these together!

I finished it off with some You're Such a Gray-cious Host twill ribbon from Clear & Simple Stamps.  I love this twill ribbon, the look of twill, but ties like ribbon.  

Hope you will join us over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations this morning and that you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.  We will be celebrating my hubby's birthday this evening (he's a Valentine's baby) and can't wait!  I'm making some beer soaked chicken tacos and red velvet cake.  The kids can't wait to give him his gift...heck, neither can I!

Here's a quick share of a gift I put together for my son's girlfriend, he was the only one that let me make something this year.
