2021 Stash Bash #4 - Valentine Card #1

 Hello, Crafty Peeps!
I am continuing my self-challenge of using items in my stash that have never been touched!  Honestly, when I found the image that I used on this card, I was looking for a background stamp!  
When I first started creating cards, I used mostly wallpaper and computer-generated images and sentiments.  I didn't do a lot of stamping because I do not color well.  I am also not inclined to spend hundreds of dollars in an attempt to learn how to color well.  It just isn't that deep for me.  In spite of this handicap, I purchased a lot of JustRight® Stamps because their images were so friggin' cute.  The "Adorable Dragon" set has been in my stash, untouched for over 10 years.
I created my background using Distress Oxide Inks, a couple of stencils, and a stamp set that arrived in the mail while I was working on the project!  The large "Primitive Heart™" was leftover from a previous project and the small heart is from the "Adorable Dragon" stamp set.
I added the dragon footprint to the inside of the card because the ones that I stamped on my background panel were covered up by the image.  The Hubster came into my studio while I was working and said, "Wow, that is a fat dragon."  I promise you that man is flirting with banishment! 

I was definitely pleased with the way this project turned out!  I like the composition and I like the colors.  It is simple, but I think it works!
Thanks so much for visiting!
