Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you have enjoyed your day.  I've had a good one.

We had our weekly lunch meet-up with friends and today I had my first pizza for a long time and a big glass of red wine.

This is the card I made for my hubby this year.

It is quite a small card and my first using an Elizabeth Crafts die.  The set includes the main two working pieces, the frame and several small charm pieces, including the little heart.

Although  I had seen it demonstrated on The Craft Channel (now no longer available, sadly) it took a bit of working out and I cut my own base pieces.

I used a small amount of Stampin' Up paper and lots of small pieces of card plus the peel off (silver) hearts and some strips of peel offs from my stash.

This is how the card looks when the ribbon is pulled.
