Valentine's Day


I found this beautiful red swirly printed paper at the little scrapbook shop here in Florida, and since it's considered a Christmas paper, I got it at half-price! I love these swirls along the edges, and thought it would make a rich Valentine card. Hopefully you can see some of the details in this picture.
Supplies: CL311 Valentine Flourish, S5264 Antique Flower Background, CH173 heart pearl accents, kraft and black cardstock, BoBunny Tis the Season Yuletide paper, Adirondack Cranberry, VersaFine Onyx Black and VersaMark (for the shadow stamping of the antique flower over the heart), Vintage Photo Distress inks, clear embossing powder
Entering this in Caardvarks Red Heart challenge.
