Won't you be my DeNami Valentine?

Yay, it's blog hop with DeNami day! This month's theme is, of course, Valentine's Day! While I miss my Christmas stamps already, I'm ready to pull out the hearts and glitter to brighten things back up around here. (Can you tell we took down the decorations? It's so drab now!)

You should have arrived here from Tina's blog. It's such a pretty place, thanks for tearing yourself away to come here. ;) In case you just stumbled in the Sunday morning by accident, here's all the lovely details:

When: The blog hop starts on January 12, 2014 at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until January 13th, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).

Why: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

Got it? Good! I did a classic 'stare at your craft supplies until something clicks' card (you know you've done it, too) and finally honed in on the pack of doilies I found in the Target dollar bin ages ago. I added some pink Perfect Pearls spray to it and while that dried the rest of the card started falling into place; some burgundy natural fiber paper I had in my scrap bin, kraft paper for the base, the ever-adorable DeNami chickie in a coffee cup stamp and the finishing touch of the Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls gave me...
...a rustic Valentine with some shimmer, shine, and glitz. 
Admit it, you LOVE the photos with my fingers in them!
I used the metallic brass Distress Ink to give it those gilded edges. I have to say, I really love how it came out and will have to try these techniques again!
Hello, chickie! Colored with Distress Markers and glittered with the red Spica pen
Thanks for sharing part of your morning with me! You're now off to Greta's blog to see what Valentine treat she's cooked up for you!

Happy Crafting!
