St Valentine's Day card

I made a card for St Val's Day with a little difference. I decided to go lightly with the hearts but stay with the pink and green heart colours with a touch of garden.

Small hearts with a touch of the garden.

The panel is matt card sponged with DI spun sugar for a pale pink, then randomly stamped the hearts which are four different ones from an old Hero Arts set. They were clear embossed and then more colour blending with victorian velvet. For the die-cut, I used Memory Box 'Honeyblossom Sprig' on some old photo paper coloured with worn lipstick, mowed lawn and pine needles. The negative from the die-cut was used to stencil the ghost of the leaves and then the die-cut adhered. The little green heart is covered in tiny pink die-cut flowers using Memory Box 'Floral Delights'.
There you have my St Val's effort. I'll play with this some more using different colour schemes and embossed backgrounds.
Happy creating.

Oh, wow, this is a really pretty and really springy St. Val's card, Ros! Thanks so much on the reinking advice. My pads have held up a lot of years, but they are finally needing more juice. Take care! Darnell
