Batty In Love

Hello~

I have a fun little Valentine for you. When I think of Bats, I don't think of Valentine's Day, but decided to take the pun that comes with the Paper Smooches Falling For You set and run with it in my usual lots of layers/trims style. 

I joined two pieces of Valentine patterned paper from my srcaps which have been joined by a heart border punch and red ric-rac then adhered to my card front. I thought it would be fun to have them hanging on red hemp twine from two paper rosettes. Hey, it's paper crafting...the sky is the limit! :-)))
A lovey dovey heart was added to the center. Next I add two banners at the top right. {A great way to use up more scraps laying on the desk.} Lastly, I stamped my sentiment in the lower right. Keeping it short as I have the short stack home with me today.

I am going to join in at: Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes, 

Simon Says Stamp - Let's Have A Laugh, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Just B Creative - January Linky Party. It's also been far too long, but I am also sharing at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground

Hope all is staying warm. (Those of you in Hawaii...you are lucky and I miss the warmth)

This is really cute, Tammy. I never have good luck with the rosette die-cuts. I can't ever get them to stay closed. Yours are darling. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
