Valentine

Today's card is a Valentine's card - hearts are a pretty safe bet when it comes to Valentine's Day and you can't go wrong with the colour red either - here is my card


I have used Very Vanilla as the base of my card with a layer of Cherry Cobbler, I then added smaller pieces of Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler. My stamped image is from the Simply Said SU set (now retired) and I added flat backed gems to the centres of the flowers.
I have a small heart punch which I used to create my border.

I would like to enter this card into the Pals Paper Arts challenge

Untitled

And also the sketch challenge over on Freshly Made Sketches


Now I know that this sketch is 'long' but I like to make square cards. I sell my cards and if they are square they are easier to package, store and price - so I followed the sketch and then mounted it on to a 5" x 5" card base. Ladies of the Freshly Made Sketches - please feel free to disqualify me if I have broken your rules.
Thanks for looking folks - hope everyone is managing to keep warm at the moment, I have just added a log to the fire and it's crackling away merrily - just need some tea and crumpets now!!!
