OWH World Card Making Day Hop using Simon Says Stamp October Kit

Today is the OWH Blog hop for Operation Write Home.  I wanted to use my October Card kit and we were tasked with making a LOVE card, so I combined the two with OWH Sketch 140.  Hope you like it!

The card uses the October Simon Says Stamp October Card kit with the addition of the sentiment from My Favorite Things “Clearly Sentimental about Coffee”.   I used the Khaki SSS ink pad and added some Hero Arts ink in Cup-0-Joe, Soft Sand, and Soft Brown.  I embossed the heart in the center using Versamark black with clear powder.   Enjoy the hop!
