For My Valentine

Hi everyone.  Hope you've all enjoyed a lovely weekend. We've had very strong winds again, and they always seem to get worse during the night.

I recently bought the 6"x6" Romantique paper stack by Prima.  So, today I had a play with one of the lovely design sheets.

My base card is cream. I used one of the new Spellbinder edgeabilities on the bottom. I cut the top off the sheet and fussy cut around it before placing it back onto the card. My heart stamp is by Prima.  I stamped with cholcolate ink, then coloured with distress inks, (barn door, fired brick and shabby shutters), then used PM's to highlight and shade. Sentiment strip is by Pink Petticoat and I added some tiny hearts from Smitten by K&Co.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges Just Tracy's Challenge - Love is in the air and Wags 'n Whiskers - Valentine's/Love
Thanks for stopping by xx
Enjoy the rest of your day
