Gee I think you're swell, Valentine


 I decided that I really better get going if I am going to get my Valentines in the mail this week.  I worked on a couple in the past week or so, but not for anybody in particular.  Today I have one that I made for my hubby.  Just a little sweet and frilly, but that's what one expects from a love note, right? 
I got the inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches #71 for my layout, and the Colour Q Challenge #174 was my color guide.
I have been dieing to play with some of my new stamp sets, and in order to do this card, I had to assemble a lot of new stamps.  The cute little scalloped labels come from Ciao, Baby from the new SU Spring catalog, and Pretty Petites came from the SaleABration brochure (and it was free!).  I love playing with the Petite Curly Label Punch, also from SAB, and it was so much fun punching out little labels, that now I have a box full of them for future use.  I embossed the Espresso Brown background with the Vine Street EF from SAB, and the print paper from the label is from Print Poetry DSP stack, and the laser cut heart is from the More Amore DSP.  I added a few more labels inside the card, along with a heart for my special heartfelt message. 
Valentines Day is just 10 days away, so I hope to work on more cards this week, and hope I have inspired you a little, too.
