VALENTINE CARD!

I wouldn't normally put this on my blog as I am not very successful at these but decided that this one 'would do' hehe. Why is it always soooo difficult to make cards for loved ones????? My man is so so traditional that I thought this year that I would shy away from the usual red/black combo!

I used a plain cream card and rubbed Frayed Burlap Distress Ink round the outside. Then I stamped the large flourish lighly with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I stuck a strip of BG & red ribbon across the middle and then added the chippie heart. The heart was covered in the Frayed Burlap and then stamped with the Faded Jeans. I rubbed some red ink round the edge to give it definition. I added a little crown brad that I coloured red with a marker pen.
Just hope he like it , but if he doesn't I love him anyway.....ahhhh. Thanks for taking a look XXX
