SOUS - My Valentine

Believe it or not this layout completes my term at SOUS...WOW!  I'm truly sad to say...I've decided not to do another term at this time.  I've had so much fun and learned so much about doing a layout from a sketch.  It was a real challenge for me at first.  However, life is really busy right now and I feel like I need some time to get back on track.  Possibly in the future I can do another term or be a guest designer...I would Love that.  I still plan to do as many of the sketches as time will allow and I will post them for you.  They are also posting all kinds of tutorials so check them out Here.

For this layout I only used the Cricut for the font and it is from the Storybook cartridge.  The border in the center was done with a mixture of border punches and I will list them at the bottom.

Pattern paper is from K&Comany and it was a Valentine stack from a couple years ago.

I like how it looks like the little bird is singing sweet words.  The words were stamped with different stamps in pink and brown ink.

Border punches punched and layered together are:

MS Deep Edge Heart border Punch & matching lattice heart punch
Center scallop heart is also MS, but I don't have the name (sorry)
EKSuccess wave dot border punch...I think that's the name
