Non-traditional Love

First of all, Happy Monday!  There.  That’s said.  Do those two words actually go together?!  Yes.  Yes, they do.  Today it’s supposed to be up in the 40’s and that, in itself, makes me smile this particular Monday morning!
Today, it’s another Prickley Pear Monday and I have a Valentine’s Day kind of card to share.  I’ve been on this grey themed mind set lately whenever I sit down to work on a project and some days I have to force myself to think about other colors!  I let myself just go with grey this time and came up with a bit of a non-traditional color scheme for a valentine.  Hope you don’t mind!  (Pink & red are overrated anyway, right?!)

Stamps – Prickley Pear (Heart Key Crown Clear Stamps Set)
Paper – SU Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie & Very Vanilla cardstocks, Paper Trey white CS
Ink – SU Basic Gray

Accessories – Prickley Pear Scalloped Circle die, SU Pumpkin Pie ribbon, SU scalloped border punch, 1.75-in. circle punch, gemstones, sponge
