Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope you have a wonderful day. So here is my card for DH - double celebration for us as it's 30 years today since we got engaged. Card is quite plain and simple but I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I used an 8x8 scalloped card blank, then embossed white card with the Cuttlebug love hearts folder. I'm getting better at extending with the embossing folder now - this piece is about 7.5 inches across.. I then punched across the bottom of the white embossed piece with my Martha Stewart Lace Heart Edge punch. I made two further strips of hearts and positioned them underneath. Finished off with a Memory Box La Rue Heart backed with red card which I cut myself by drawing around the die. Add a red bow from stash box and done. No gems on this one.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Creations Challenge 209 - Love and/Hearts
Papertake Weekly - Hearts & Flowers
Allsorts Challenge 193 - Valentines
Craft Your Passion challenge 149 - My Valentine

Thanks for looking!
