Happy Valentine's Day to My Valentine!

So, I suppose I can post this card now that it's so close to Valentine's Day and I don't believe my Valentine will ever come and look on my blog and find it. ;)  This is me. Yep, this little image from The Paper Nest Dolls is me. My hair is this color and I wear it long and with bangs..but I usually keep it all pulled back in a ponytail. I tried to make a card that my husband would recognize as me...guess I'll find out on Valentine's Day if my idea worked. 


I loved this paper and thought that using the red and pink would be a great combination. I used my set of nested ovals by Quik Cutz and the embossed and inked diecut on the side is by Marianne. I love the red felt heart border that is on a roll and came from a local craft store. My flowers are a combination from I Am Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts. Oh, the pink metal "MINE" heart in the bouquet is a charm with the ring cut off and it was silver but I wanted it pink so I colored it with my Copics.


I have a hidden Magnolia diecut tag that I embedded a little gold key with ultra thick embossing powder and I added some loose glitter and mica chips for shine within the embossing powder. This is the key to my heart.  Okay, everybody all together now, AWWWWWWWWW.  I used my Cuttlebug for all my die cuts.


This image is colored with Copics and I added some clear Wink of Stella to her bows, collar and striped socks for extra shine. I added Glossy Accents to the string of hearts. The little dots around my image are from my White Pearl Pen. I love fussy and fancy cards because I love embellishments!  If I ever gave my dear husband a CAS card, he'd wondered why I don't love him anymore. 

Happy Valentine's Day, Tim

                                                                           Love,
                                                                           Gail

  5. She's sweet and so are you! Your hubby will love this, especially the key to your heart! Your floral bouquet is gorgeous and I love the coloured charm you added! The glossy accents on the hearts looks amazing! I don't know if my man prefers CAS or fancy - he seems to like anything with a cat on it!
