Sparkly Hearts Valentine's Day Card For Owen

Here is the Valentine's card I made for my hubby Owen using black, white and red which is a fave colour combo of his.  I also used the fabulous SU! You are Loved set and the sparkly red glimmer paper.  I LOVE that paper, I'm going to stock up with it so that I have lots to use for Christmas cards!

I started off by stamping the Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp in Real Red ink and I covered the centre with a black circle and added a popped up sparkly heart.  I added the beautiful sentiment and more punched sparkly hearts.  I simply matted my panel onto a black layer and adhered it to the front of a 5 1/4" square white card base.

Here's the inside and envelope.  I used 'Hugs & Kisses' from the Hero Arts 'Sending You Love' set for the sentiment, I love that I can cut the sentiments out with a matching frame die! I coloured in the flower with a Real Red marker and a blender pen.  I added gold brads before gluing the red sparkly strip to the card.  A few more punched hearts finished off the inside and the envelope flap.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the big red doily and all of the glittery hearts. The black circle is perfect to balance the red and really makes the large glitter heart stand out!
