Whimsie Valentine

I couldn't help but play around some more with those fun glassine bags that SRM carries.  I played along with Whimsie Doodles sketch challenge and decided to use that sketch on the bag to make for a Valentine for my husband.  One he can take with him when he deploys to Afghanistan.  Which happens to be a few days after. 

I used the freebie image of mailed my heart that I have had for some time knowing it would be one I'd use for my husband when he left.  I colored in this sweet image with Copics and cut her out.  The dp is the retired collection from Basic Grey called Lily Kate.  I used some pleated ribbon along with those fun border stickers from SRM for the top panel and finished her with a paper rose from Recollections and a little sticker on the bottom the says I love you. I dressed up the bag a little by using my decorative scissors to cut the top for a scalloped edge.  The inside:

I took a photo from our last anniversary and changed it to an antique effect and printed it out.  I put it on top of the dp while framing it with more of the SRM We've got your border stickers.  I then used a piece of the Valentine border stickers that says, "Be my Valentine" that I overlapped on the on the bottom of the photo.  I used a tab die cutout for the top while using another sticker that says "Be Mine" at the top overlapped with a heart cutout from Spellbinders.  That heart is used as the pull out piece to take it out of the bag. 

So, something else to use your glassine bags for! : )  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous Saturday! The sun is shining here today so I will enjoy that!!
