I wanted to share this card with you because I think that it's one of my favorites this Valentines. I sometimes sit down and start to make a card, and never does it turn out the way I want. This time I sat down and just went with it ~ and something came out that I really liked!!!

The base card is Pixie Pink. I layered the polka dot paper from Paper Salon. I stamped the image from the Happy Heart Day set and colored he "flowers" in and paper pieced the elephant with some scrap paper I had. I first sponged Pink Passion ink around that panel, then used my Marvy corner punch on the corners. I layered that panel on to a piece of Chocolate Chip that I punched the corner with also ~ then layered that on to a piece of Real Red. Before I placed that on the card I added a length of Rick Rack that I purchased at Walmart and tied a scrap piece of pink ribbon to it.

I layered the image on the card with pop dots. The card looked "blah" with out a sentiment. So I stamped the sentiment from the set on to a piece of white cs and layered that on to a piece of Chocolate Chip. I stamped the heart flower image from the same set and placed it on to the top of the tag and held it together with a heart shaped eyelet. I placed that on to the card with pop dots also.

I then thought that the card needed some "sparkles" so I added some red stickles to all the hearts on the card. This card actually turned out to be my favorite for this year... Hope you like!
