Sweet Valentine

I have less than a month to make Valentine Day cards, so I thought I better get cracking on them!!  If nothing else, I needed one for my husband.....since Valentine's Day is also our wedding anniversary!  Yep, you heard it...we must have been crazy!  It's nearly impossible for us to celebrate our anniversary by going out to dinner on the actual date, because every other couple in the world is trying to do the same with their significant other!!  We usually just wait & go a few days later.  Anyway, I thought I would try to challenge myself to make a card almost entirely white, or close to it.  This was very stressful for me, but I wanted to try new things this year, and I actually ended up liking what I did.  The white panel in the back was embossed with Cuttlebug's Decorate Tile folder.  The second smaller panel was embossed with Sizzix folder..don't know the name. I put some double-sided foam tape in between the two to make the card have some dimension.  The heart was cut using Spellbinder's Vines of Passion, ( I just bought it for myself this year after seeing it on someone's blog) and I framed it with Spellbinder's Lace Doily Motif die, and popped that layer up also with some pop dots. Then I just added some white pearls on the heart, some red ones on the doily, and added my sentiment "Sweet Valentine" from My Creative Time's Teeny Tiny Tag set.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
