SSD Monthly Challenge

I was so excited about doing the background to this card that I forgot one of the elements of the challenge - using hearts.  OOPS!  Anyways... here's my card...  The image is Pinup Kitty and I colored her with Prismacolor colored pencils.  My hubby's birthday is Feb. 12, so I thought going with red would work for him :-)  I wrote the sentiment out by hand and fussy cut it. She was die cut using Nestabilities and a Cuttlebug machine.  For the background...are you ready for this?.... I had saved awhile back the plastic mesh-type thing that is on the top part of a box of clementines.  I thought it might make a good stencil someday...and this was the perfect card for it!  I used Stampin' Up's Stampin' Pastels chalks and rubbed it all over the 'stencil' over black paper.  I love how it came out! AND even my hubby picked up on it and commented on how much he liked the background - not a typical thing for him to do lol
