Valentine's Day Card Series: Card 4

I've got more Valentine inspiration for you every day this week, until Thursday.
I'm guessing some of you still haven't made your Valentines yet - am I right?

Something wonderful has happened around here.
Now that I'm no longer teaching locally, I find myself experiencing a new freedom while creating.
I don't have to worry if something can be easily duplicated or try to find multiples of it.
I can just grab anything I love in my stash and mix it together and create.
I've been having tons of fun and I'm enjoying using up all my little goodies!!!

So still working my way through that 6x6 paper pad.....I found a few more sheets to put together:
 
One of my goals right now is to use my HUGE stash of letter stickers.
These are a fairly recent purchase and in the past, I would have saved them until I was tired of them but no more. I am using it all!

I lined up the word "hearts" using a metal ruler:
 
Then I decided to mix it up and made the rest of the letter stickers a bit nilly-willy for fun!
Here's the card!...
 
You can see a bit of tan at the top of the pattern on the right (above).
That's because the sheets in the paper pad all have tan at the top so I decided to leave it there instead of trimming it off.
Then I just added a couple more patterns, a brown border sticker and a few fun embellies.
 
My new favorite thing is making the inside pretty so I picked a coordinating paper, stamped it and popped it in...
So that's the second of three cards I've made from the paper pad and I plan to make at least one more.
I loves me some 6x6 paper pads. :)
 
Hope you enjoyed this one! Stay crafty my friends!
