You & Me are like Salt & Pepper

This is my post for several challenges!  This was a challenge for me because one of the challenges was to create a sketch "with a spin".  They wanted a "Non Traditional" Valentine.  And another challenge was to make an easel card.  Well this sure was a way for me to jump right into these challenges.  But I think I did alright.

The main image was a new Digi set that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is selling called You & Me.  This set called my name and I had to get.  I look forward to creating a lot more with this cute little set!  I added some stickles to the "salt" and chalked the "pepper".  The valentine greeting came from CTMH February Word Puzzle.  I used a couple heart brads, one was used to hang a heart with twine and the other was used as the "stopper" for the easel card.
All in all, not too bad for my first shot.  I will have to admit up front that I am not a "fancy" stamper and like to use my leftover scrapping papers to make these challenge cards.
     Here is a look at the easel card from the side.
Pretty cool.  I had never made one before and am happy to add this to my arsenal of tricks!  It will surely "WOW" the receiver and they will think it was so difficult and tricky (but it wasn't).
