Happy Hump day to you all!

I did warn you yesterday that today's card was not for the weak hearted!! Can you say Va Va Vooom?! Or rather Ooh La La!

That's the name of this digital stamp by Victoria Case and I gave this to my Man for Valentine's Day. I figured I should make a card for him since it was V-Day and if I didn't....well, my days might have been numbered in this new hobby of mine! LOL

I printed Mrs Ooh La La out on Georgia Pacific cardstock and watercolored her while listening to Trace Atkins 'Hot Mama' song. (That's the first time I've seen the video clip of this song and honestly - the song is WAY better without the visual! haha)

I didn't over embellish this card since it was for a man and once he got a load of the image, he wouldn't remember what the rest of the card looked like! But I did intentionally use the Martha Stewart edge punch to make the ribbon detail resemble a garter....a detail lost on my Man.

I left off the sentiment on the front and put it inside instead...

The verdict: The Man loved the card and had a great Valentines Day ;).....and told me I could continue to buy stamps if they all looked like this one! :) Thanks for stopping by today.

I was wondering if we'd see this one from you (I checked out all the VC stamps after your last few cards with her stamps)! Dang, girlie, how long did it take you to color this temptress? She is colored to perfection! Oh my gosh and the sentiment is absolutely perfect. oh, and I like the border you did around the image.
I'm glad you get to keep your craft ;)
