To My Valentine

Seems that I can't get 
enough pink. It's never been my favorite color, but how can you make a Valentine card without it?

My pink gingham was 
a scrap of Kiwi paper in my stash. (Sure wish I had more of it.) I paired it with paper from the My Mind's Eye Portobello Road 6x6 Designer Paper Pad. The Distress Ink is Worn Lipstick.

The mini envelope 
is from The Paper Company and I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls Folder. The hearts were cut with Spellbinder's Classic Hearts and embellished with Rock Candy Stickles. The flourish was cut with Die-namics Leafy Flourish. The jewels are TPC Studios My Funny Valentine. The buttons came from "Summer of Love" Pixie kit from last June.

The Strawberry Shortcake 
seam binding is also from the SOL kit and the Girls' Paperie Vintage Whimsy metal charm is from the July "Midsummer Night's Dream" kit. I made the flower from a Webster's Pages trim with a mini rose sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Cotton Candy Pink Starburst for the center.
I am entering my card at:
Shopping Our Stash - Hearts, Valentines and/or Lace

Thank you for the visit!
