Maybe look for some card sketches.  Or maybe look at them as mini layouts--the main focus can be a stamp or even a piece of pp, instead of a photo.  Good luck with it!

OK ya'll... I made a card. You may not know this, but I am not known in my family or group of friends as a card maker. I STINK at it... With that being said, I started this project blind and went with my heart. I heard "Valentine" on my MP3 player (love that song) so I used it for inspiration... I used a dusty mauve ( no -no) before I read the rules, BUT since I made it I am making you all look at it even if it is ineligible. I made a COOL card! Check it out! ((Doing the happy dance)).

Love this authentique pp.  that wonderful you  on the bottom of the card is part of the actual pp.  so are the little gold and white ovals.  I just added the hearts and the greeting.
I am also using this card for the One word challenge to use the word SWEET.

I thought outside the box for a Valentine's card. This pic found online (is wallpaper) inspired me to put a plain pic on the cover of the card and decorate the inside like a tree!
(the use of the Red on the pic OK'd previously with Leslie)
