It's YNS Fun Friday!

Hello and Happy Friday!  Today I have a fun Valentine's Day card to share with you.  And speaking of fun, did you know that there is a new feature for 2012 over on the Your Next Stamp blog?  It's call Fun Fridays---Karen will be sharing some design team creations, tips and tutorials.  So be sure to stop by each Friday to learn something new.

Also, just a reminder that you have until Monday to participate in the YNS release blog hop for your chance to win one of the new Jenny Suchin stamp sets like the one featured in this card (click on release blog hop link to go to my post).

And now for my card.  I used the new Basket Animals set and put two little bears in the basket.  The background was embossed with a Sizzix heart themed embossing folder and lightly sanded.  To play along with this week's Lily Pad card challenge, I added chipboard frame around my image as well as a chipboard heart.  I combined challenges with this week's Simon Says challenge and added some striped gathered ribbon and the dots around the chipboard frame.
Have a great weekend!
