XOXO For My Valentine!

Hi-ya!

So, I have been working on some projects for the upcoming Wilson Designs release and decided to work on some Valentine cards too. So much for a hiatus! I am learning to craft without all my inks and tools.
I used only one stamp on this little number (I know Gasp) and it is from DeNami Designs, but I am learning to allow myself to embellish more since I don't have my diecuts, embossing folders, copics, and my handy dandy die cutting machines right now! 

I distressed the edges of the library card with none other than my FINGERNAIL! (Who needs a Zutter Distrezz It All?) I then inked the edges with tea stain ink. I stamped the xoxo sentiment from DeNami Designs and created a tea stained distressed tag and adhered it to the wrinkled ribbon from MemrieMare with twine. 

Who knows, you may be seeing more of my vintage Valentine's. I have plenty to make that is for sure.
I thought it would be fun to play along in these challenges!
