Bandit of love

Good morning friends!  Can you believe we are in February already?  It is the month of love...well, the month of Valentine's Day.  I know some people don't celebrate it because it is a commercial holiday but I am totally into showing extra love to my friends and family on Valentine's Day so how about I show you another card I made...today I'm using some super cute stamps from Great Impressions Stamps...
 As you can see I used a fun raccoon cut file (from Treasure Box Designs) along with the Bandit of Love Stamp on the outside.  As strange as it may seem I knew I wanted to use black or grey with this raccoon for the card base but of course  love calls for some red, right so I used red and white as the accent colors.  A little white gel pen on the raccoon really gave it some fun character.
And inside I added the Smokey the Love Bandit stamp and another little heart...can't have to many hearts in my opinion!  I left lots of room for a mushy note for my hubby!  I think I already made him a card for Valentine's Day but I often give him more than one throughout the day so this would be no different!

I would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge.  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenge - Anything Goes
Love to Scrap Challenge Blog - Have a Heart
Fantasy Stampers Challenge - Love is in the Air
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Love/Valentine's/Anniversary
