Today is the second Wednesday which brings another Over the Hump Blog Candy Giveaway at InStyle Stamps.  Since Valentine's Day will be here before we know it, the theme this month is hearts. 

For this card I used Ava with Balloons and paper pieced her dress and the balloons. I decided to go with a distressed/shabby chic look and think she fits in with this perfectl.  The heart stick pin is one that I received in grade school {quite some time ago} and I thought it added a nice touch to this card.  The buttons and lace trim are both vintage items.   

So, how would you like to win 5 InStyle Stamps digi images?  All you have to do is head over to the InStyle Stamps blog and join in our challenge this month. 

Remember, when shopping at InStyle stamps, use this link {InStyle Stamps} and you will automatically receive a 5% discount on your purchase!
