Love You to......Jupiter? PP278

This week, the super creative Sandy is our hostess at The Paper Players with a challenge to create a Clean-and-Simple valentine--yay, Valentines!!
You know that excitement you get when you've made a card you love and just HAVE to share it with someone?  Right?  After I made today's card, I literally squealed because it came out just like I pictured it in my head.  I rushed to show it to our daughter--coz, ya know hubby just doesn't "get" it--and was delighted when she squealed too!  And then I said look how I painted the moon with Wink of Stella so it sparkles and she said......that's not the moon, Mama, that's Jupiter.  Talk about a buzz kill, ha!
Alright, I admit the swirly paper (Going Places DSP stack) does look a bit like the Jupiter's big red spot but I prefer to think of it as the swirling mists of a full moon.....especially with all the Wink of Stella I painted on it!  The background paper is also from the Going Places DSP stack and I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to create the sentiment (a favorite saying between DD and me).  I added some Gold Thread looped behind the moon (yeah, I know the moon doesn't have rings!) just because I thought it looked very galactic.  
I picked up the Hello Honey color from the DSP and used it on the inside with two images from the Going Global stamp set--love how the images coordinate with the Going Places DSP.  Oh, and if you're curious the card measures 5" square.  I don't often make square cards but this one seemed just the right size.  

We hope you will join us at The Paper Players this week for some Valentine fun!  Check out the rest of the design team for more inspiration and then join us before our challenge closes on Friday, January 22nd at Noon (PST).  Have a great day!

Nance, I will squeal with you! It looks like the Moon to me! I love the background paper and the way you created the sentiment with the rotary stamp. I bought it and have never used it! Thanks for the inspiration. The inside of your card is perfect, too! Such a special Valentine! XX

Nance your card is gorgeous, love the "wink of Stella" and the DSP is perfect, of course the sentiment just had to be this one.

Nance, this is bold, graphic and stunning. The background you created with the little stars and the twine is perfect and I love how you finished off the inside, too. I also love that you didn't use the traditional "love/valentine" colors. A total standout card.
hugs
