Next Holiday...Valentine's Day...& 2S4U

It's been a long time since I've participated in a 2 Sketches 4 You challenge...something I can't believe I don't do every week with their really great and fun sketches to work with!

Since I'm always doing things at the last minute I decided to jump over all my to do projects and go right into Valentine's Day. Especially since Regina over at her store The Cutting Café came out with a really great Heart Bag.

So I got to it and made one to give a little gift to my DF and a matching card to go with it.

So I'll start with this really cut bag. I took a really pretty pink patterned paper by Anna Griffin and I printed Regina's Valentine Big Holiday Words printable stamps on it:

I also used one of Regina's Circle Word printable stamp:

I love Regina's bags and boxes that have windows!

And here's the matching card that I made using Kazan's sketch for this week's challenge. Here's Kazan's sketch:

On this I got to use this beautiful printable stamp frame designed by Regina, it comes from another great set of hers called Valentine Borders which are the perfect size if you want to make a quarter fold size card:

I pulled the Valentine word from the Big Holiday printable stamp set:

I'm really please how this set came out!

Matching envie:

A borrowed quote from Sophocles for the inside of the card:
