Happy Valentine's Day - PSIC#28

Hi There!

I am back after taking a few months off with the new inspiration challenge at Paper Sweeties! It's a pretty one!  I kept my card simply only because I knew this would be going in the mail. :-)

I started with a pink card base which I adhered a piece of damask patterned paper after the edges have been distressed. Using a framed Sweet Cut die, which was cut from white card stock and inked around the edges with Antique Linen for a vintage feel, I added it to the left center of the card front. I hand-cut a sentiment banner from the same pink cardstock the base was created from and stamped Valentine's Day in red ink which was adhered and anchored with a red button laced with hemp twine.  Using a Paper Sweeties sentiment set, I masked off part of the sentiment to allow only Happy to show on the white frame just above the banner. Two hearts were die-cut from various patterned papers from my stash and adhered to the upper left portion of the frame.  A length of twine was wrapped around the top portion of the card and tied in a double bow.  Lastly, inspired by the candies in the photo, a few enamel dots were placed in the lower right corner for a final finishing touch.

I'm not sure how I missed this beauty yesterday. Maybe all of the excitement of the Super Bowl, hehe! Your card is gorgeous, love the background paper with the pop of twine! The way you added the sentiment looks fabulous and I just love the button and enamel dots! Gorgeous all the way around!
