Ippity Hop Monday - Hello

Good morning and happy Valentine's Day.  Since it's Valentine's Day, I thought it was only appropriate to make a love card for today's hop.  I remembered this sweet bird cage stamp from Because of You and decided that was the image I wanted to use for today's card. I also used the February colors for this months {ippity} challenge  of black, white, aqua and red.






To begin the card I used the Book It stamp ( I love this stamp)  and stamped it three times, twice in aqua and once in red, then layered the stamped images. I used a tab punch  and tied the papers together with  red and white twine.  The bird cage was colored with markers and  I added a button and rhinestones to finish off the card.

Here are the stamp sets used on today's card.







                                                         

                



Jens blog is next on the list and I'm sure she has a wonderful project to share with you.  Thanks so much for stopping by  and I hope you have a sweet Valentine's Day!
