A quick Valentine...

Some people really do leave it until the last minute...

I was asked to do a quick Valentines day card yesterday, and it was for a man!

I never know what to do for men's cards, but especially not a Valentine card!  They don't go for cute as a rule, do they? I sat and stared at a blank piece of card for ages and then finally came up with this.

I used pearlescent card as the base, cut to six by six inches when folded.

On the front cover, I embossed some hearts using my eazi-score board, and put a small peel off heart in the centres.  I used a "lipstick kiss" stamp from my collection, and stamped it with aged mahogany distress ink in between the embossed hearts.

The final touch was the "I love you" sentiment, which was a peeloff put onto the same card as the base and layered with gold mirri card.

It didn't take long and I was really pleased with this one.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
