Valentine Treats

I normally boycott Valentine's Day, but this year I decided to make some treats for my friends and co-workers. I think they turned out pretty good! (Special thanks to Shannon Lackmeyer from whom I shamelessley copied !)

I combined the color and sketch challenges for this week. The color challenge was to use Blue Ballet, Apricot Appeal, and Real Red (I really liked this color combination!). I stamped the flower and butterfly on the blue cardstock using blue ink the camera didn't pick it up very well.
