Paper Players........Valentine for my Friend

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
Thanks for stopping by today, I have a fun card to share with you. I made this card using the challenge this week on the Paper Players Blog

Clean and Simple One Layer Valentine. 
Well, we all know that I like layers, but I wanted to give this challenge a try. 
This stamp, a single stamp from Stampin Up called "People Like You", was not made to be a Valentine stamp per say but I think it works. I wanted to make a special card of a friend that would convey my feelings.
This is the perfect one, in my opinion.
This is a fun stamp to color and a bit challenging too. I worked a bit on the flowers and they are nice but not exactly the way I want but since I used regular card stock and not watercolor paper  I could not work the ink as much.
 I stamped the image onto white card stock with black stazon and colored using my aqua painter and Strawberry Slush and Primrose Petals with a bit of Crushed Curry in the centers.
I used Pear Pizzazz for the stem and used Crumb Cake around the image and sentiment.

I used my Stampin Up black marker to make the little "scribbles and dots" around the outside. 
The "love" is from the Best of Love stamp set and I used my stamp a ma jig to center it. I like how this turned out and I think my friend will like it but I do miss my layers and ribbons an embellies.

Let me know what you think.
