You Rock My World!

Ok, so I love Valentine's Day. And I love pink. But... well... this card. Hmm. I'm thinking it's a little much on the pink, even for me! But, it was fun to make - and that's really what it's all about, isn't it? :-) Monica, my Hambo boss, issued an informal challenge to her design team gals, to make a Valentine's card using a stamp you wouldn't necessarily think of as being a Valentine's stamp. I know, it's not such a HUGE stretch to make this a V-day card with that super cute new "You ROCK my world!" sentiment - but I'm going to venture a guess that Monica never dreamed her new globe would ever look this pink and polka dotted! Although now that I think about it, I have been on her team for nearly a year now, so maybe she IS starting to expect this sort of craziness from me...! :-) The layout for this is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch. The globe is paper pieced with two colors of pink polka dot paper and silver cardstock. For the sentiment, I stamped it out on white, and then stamped it again on the punched out pink heart and lined it up. Those super loud heart brads have been in my stash for ages - I finally found a home for them!! Well I better go and get Courtney some lunch - and I hope you don't lose yours after looking at this crazy card! LOL! Thanks for stopping by today!
