January AEI♥U Challenge

Good morning!  I have pulled out some *new* stamps that I purchased with some birthday money to gear up for the Online Card Class.  I have discovered stamps from Avery Elle that are very hip and trendy and I adore them!  In reading their blog I found a monthly challenge and figured I'd give it a go.

This is the inspiration for the challenge.  

Here is the first card I made:

I decided to use the colors and the striped boots for my inspiration.  The Lots of Love stamp set had a striped heart stamp which was perfect for this!  I like the black/gray/red for a Valentine's Day card because it can be given to anyone.  (The layout was one I had in my sketchbook from a card I had seen somewhere but I don't know where.)  It felt good to stamp for fun and I stamped a couple of other cards that I'll be sharing soon, so please peek back here if you have time.  Thanks!

Love all the details in your card. The chevrons, the gems, the layered banners. Great card!
