Romance is in the Air

Once the Valentine cards were completed for my daughter's class, it was time to move on to a card for my Sweetheart. I had some ideas in the back of my mine, just finished the card a few minutes ago. Billy won't get it until tomorrow, as both of us work tonight, we will have our little romantic evening tomorrow with a candlelight dinner.

Last year I gave Billy a card and homemade brownies for Valentine's day, he was more impressed with the Valentine card, hope that he likes this one as much.

It just so happens that this card will be representing a few challenges also. Gingersnap Creations wanted a card to be romantic, that brings to mind, music, roses, hearts and of course hugs and kisses. The background paper was from Graphics Fairy, the roses were embossed, or should I say de-embossed using my Big Shot and the Textured Impressions Manhatton Flower. A brayer was used to color the flowers with Classic Red Ink from Stampin Up.

The love sentiment is from a wedding set, that was purchased at Joann's on clearance, got to love that. The ovals are from the scalloped oval die cuts from Spellbinders. The heart punch from Creative Memories was used to make the three matted hearts. Heart studs were added to the center of each of those hearts. This made for a "Mushy Gushy Valentine" which is the challenge for Pink Elephant, and "Have A Heart or Hearts" is the challenge at Daring Cardmakers.

Time for me to head off to work, hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day and you get hugs and kisses from your loved ones.
