A lovely sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week:
gave me a chance to use the new Valentine’s set from the mini, P.S. I Love You, as well as the beautiful Designer Cuts:
I cut the front panel from one of the Designer Cuts cards, mounted a piece of Riding Hood Red DP behind it and put it on a RHR card. 
A Blushing Bride mat and matching pleated ribbon complement the rich deep red, and I took a cue from my friend Donna at Butternut Sage and “unpleated” some ribbon to make a luscious rhinestone-clad bow!  I heat-embossed a little row of hearts at the bottom right and added a sentiment above:
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from God’s Blessings in RHR and added the large heart  in Blushing Bride:
I just love this sweet set!  
Feeling a little bit better!

  11. This is so sweet and delicate. I love how you've got the dp peeking through the heart.

  12. What a great idea to use the front of the card with the cut out LeAnne. So pretty! And the stamping underneath looks great too.
