Hi crafty friends!  It's time for the February CYS- Challenge Your Stash challenge group over at Splitcoaststampers.  Tracie – aka taclary- challenged us to use Hearts anyway on our cards.  

 How fun is this sweet set from Gina K?  I just love this!  LOL  I stamped these images with Tuxedo Memento Black ink. I cut them out with the Scan N Cut. I colored with Copics. The Glimmer is added with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glimmer pen. 
 I used a heart stamp to make the background with Versamark- we used to call this watermarking.  I used a retired SU cardstock Blush Blossom for the base.

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the February Hearts challenge cards-the group members posted on Splitcoast for this challenge.

 The group says closed- but we ARE open to new members!

So cute, Shelly. A wonderful birthday card. I love to watermark my backgrounds with Versamark. I think it's a great idea. I'll have to check out the group. I have a LOT of stash to use up. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great day!
