Oriental Outlines Valentine

Well I managed a little craft time yesterday afternoon (and no I didn't do my house work first like I said I would....but it did get done :)
I did this card for the current challenge over at the Outlines blog for 'hearts'. Check it out here -
I was trying for an oriental style Valentines card - I dug out my coveted and hoarded washi paper last week and am determined to use some of it. The piece of washi paper I chose for today was a scrap that was just a bit bigger than card size and was mainly red, white and black - with some swirls of blue.
The stamp I used from Outlines has some heart shapes in it so I colored it with copics to match the paper and colored 2 extra of the hearts to cut out for decoration.
The butterfly was left from another project and has been run through a texture folder - but it is very hard to see in the photo.....
I used some silver mettalic pen to edge both the panels and added a few rhinestones too.

Well I had planned on doing some more yard work this am but doesn't look like the weather is going to let me - not raining yet but radar looks like it will be within the for a quick walk and then if the rain holds off will try some yard work otherwise it is a day at the craft table for me :) (come on rain :)
I work tonight but then I have 9 days off - going to a Stamp convention near Atlanta GA this weekend and then the rest of the week will be a staycation at home - always lots to do and the craft table is always ready :)
All for this am - Take Care
