Be Mine... a few months late!

So I realize this one is out of season. But that's what happens when I forget to post them back when they actually were in season. Or it could be because I'm still packing/cleaning/moving/unpacking/cleaning/etc.. And there has not been so much making happening lately so much as making messes doing said packing/cleaning/moving/unpacking/cleaning/etc. But I do still love this card, so I thought I'd share it with you and get the verdict on whether everyone else likes it or not.
It's a bit hard to tell, but the white letters are velvet so they echo the velvet ribbon on the left. The velvet ribbon echoes the scallops on the right. The tiny hearts on the big letters echo the big hearts on the velvet ribbon.
{This is, apparently, a very echo-y card.} I really like how everything kind of ties together, though. That was more of a happy accident than anything else and it makes me happy. This one just works for me. (Just a sidenote... I made this one for Glue Arts. I used their Ribbon Adhesive on the ribbon and their Adhesive Squares, and Glue Glider with Perma Tac adhesive on everything else.) Later, friends! {Be Mine} card Cardstock - White (Papertrey Ink), Going Gray (Stampin' Up) Specialty paper - Silver Glitter & Wine Red Glitter (Best Creations) Ink - Going Gray, Real Red (Stampin' Up)Stamps - Text Style, Simple Valentine (Papertrey Ink) Stickers - Cherry, Black Tie (American Crafts) Ribbon - American Crafts Other - Prisma Glitter (Papertrey Ink), slit punch (Stampin' Up), folk heart punch (EK Success) Adhesive - Glue Glider Pro & Perma Tac Adhesive, Ribbon Adhesive, Adhesive Squares

I'm loving it, too.

Glad you were able to take a break from packing, unpacking, sorting, cleaning, etc. to show us the card. (Maybe you needed the break!) The process of moving is just not fun whether it is across town or across the country. I understand how after one move, a person can decide to die in her home.
