PCP Alota Group Valentine Challenge!

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I have a card for the PCP (Paper Craft Planet) Alota Rubber Stamps Valentine Challenge! Loving the Valentines and Love that I got to use new stamps for this one!
Ok, so the challenge is to make a Valentine and upload it to PCP Gallery with the tag code ALOTA4. Then they will be loaded into the slide show. If the item is a 3-D Valentine you get double the chances in the hat! How cool is that? Well mine is a card, I may do something else that is different later - I was just really excited to use these new stamps.
The Teddy Bear is part of the "Valentine Cuties" set and the Heart Circle and Sentiment is part of the "Pretty Circles Essentials Set" I have colored everything with my Copics, the circle of hearts I cut out with my Fiskar's Fingertip knife. You can use your Nestibilities, but I wanted to see the shape of all of the hearts for this one.
My base is a dark red card stock, with two pieces of pattern paper from My Minds Eye, I inked the edges and punched the bottom of the dot paper with Martha's Valentine Punch. Now when I did this I had a bit of each edge still holding on the bottom of the paper, I started to tear it off and then thought it looked kind of cool, different. And besides if I had tried to make the paper do that it would have never happened, so I went with it!
For some added drama I used three prima flowers topped with jewelry spacers and a pretty heart charm, attached with mini brads.
Well short and sweet today - Hubby is off and we are going to run errands... shopping at the outlet mall with MIL, and for being good and going with us the "Man's Mall" or the sporting good store.. LOL. So better get going -
I hope you will all take part in the PCP ALota Valentine challenge.. my two new favorite Alota stamps are up for grabs!! (take a peek at the site to see which ones they are) I really do love these two!
HUGS and hope you have some time to get inky!
