Head over heels

Happy Friday! I have a friend who asked me to make a valentine card for her to give to her hubby. She didnt want anything mushy she's like me she likes cute and funny! When I saw todays challenge I thought it would be a good time to make her card and this is what I came up with. She didnt want traditional colors or traditional images like hearts, etc. So I went through my images and found this little duck from High hopes. Isnt he adorable!?!? I printed the sentiment out on my computer since I couldnt find what I was looking for in my sentiments....reason to go shopping!LOL!

I started with a 31/4" x 12" apricot card base folded in half and used the ddsketch for this month. For todays challenge you could use 2 colors and a neutral so for my card I chose barely banana, apricot appeal and black for my neutral. Ive been on a black kick this week..dont know what thats about! You couldnt use any dp or cuttlbug only background stamps. I chose crosshatch and stamped it in black on banana and layered with black. The duck was colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. The circles are fiskars circle cutter. The sentiment is punched with SU circle punches. It was so hard not to use my scallop punch or add some ribbon to this card! I added 3 black brads instead to finish off the card. I think I need to go make a girly card now!LOL!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
