Challenge Me Monday - #148 Be My Valentine & Monday Challenge #86 - For Your Sweetheart

Happy Valentine's Week!  It has been an extremely busy month of February. As I said in my last quick post I just got a Cameo and I haven't got to play with it yet!  Boo!  My Cameo was missing a working part so I am waiting for a replacement but I have been watching tutorials and went to a demo so I'm confident I will enjoy it as much as I do the Cricut.  No worries my Cricut, I will still use you =)

 Here is a Valentines Day card I gave to my bestie.
  It was cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge.
I cut Hello Kitty at 3.5 inches, the ribbon came from my stash and if I remember it correctly it was from a bow from a gift from last Christmas. ( I don't waste, I recycle) The base of the card and the black mat are both recollections.  The red background paper is not from a paper stack but from loose papers ( I want to say it's Echo Park but not 100% sure). 
I for sure love Glossy Accents and every chance I get I use it.  To doll HK up, I applied Glossy Accents on her bow and her nose.  Lastly, I added rhinestones to finish off the card.  
I hope you had a wonderful and Happy Valentines with your loved ones.  Have a great week. Till next time. 
xoxo, Mina
