Valentine’s Week # 6

My 6th Valentine project is a card, and this time an unexpected stamp set ~ Sheltering Tree’ from the Occasions catalog.  This is a very versatile set and I shall be featuring it in some of my classes in the coming months.  The colors, once again, are traditional for valentine day but it would look equally as good in any of the other color combinations I have shared in the last few days.
