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
