...in love...sending bugs and kisses to my sweetie...(humming)

MSM's Swirly Valentine

...another Bugs & Kisses creation inspired by an SCS Color Combo Challenge - CC212.  Pink Piroutte, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red.   Pink and Red do not go together.  I never wore pink and red in the same outfit at the same time.  Looks good on this card, tho.  I used my Big Shot and Swirly Cuttlebug embossing folder to pressure emboss the card front.  Then I used a technique called direct to paper - I simply rubbed the Chocolate Chip classic ink pad over the raised areas on the card front.  The stacked bugs were created using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I'm really liking the stacked bugs! 

Did I just say I liked bugs?  Eeek!

I think this is my sweetie's valentine...I can't believe I actually got a valentine made for my DH well before Valentine's Day. 

What's happening to me?  I like bugs and have cards ready before the designated holiday.
