Love You 24-7

I don't send or give too many Valentines but since I've made only one so far this year I used the Mojo Monday Challenge #225 and Shirley's Valentine Blog Hop as inspiration for this card.  The colors were picked up from the designer paper.

The base of the card is Baja Breeze card stock.  I then added a layer of Island Indigo card stock.  Using the Lace Ribbon Border punch, I punched a strip of Island Indigo card stock.  Two pieces of Baja Breeze ribbon was weaved through leaving long ends in the center.  The lacy border piece was then attached to Blushing Bride card stock by over lapping the other ends of the ribbon to the back.  I attached this to a 
piece of Twitterpated designer paper and matted this layer with Island Indigo card stock.  I cut four small squares each of Baja Breeze and Island Indigo card stocks and attached them together.  They were added to the card front.  I used the Doily Triple Layer Punch to punch out three doilies from Whisper White card stock.  Three half inch circles were punched out of Island Indigo card stock and added to the center of each doily.  They were each added to a square with dimensionals.  The small Blushing Bride hearts were punched out with the Heart to Heart punch and attached to the center of each doily with glue dots.  The sentiment from the Pretty Postage stamp set was heat embossed with VersaMark, Blushing Bride ink and clear embossing powder.  I punched it out with the 1" Square punch and attached it to the last square with dimensionals.  Pearls were added to the center of the hearts, the lace border and the sentiment.  To finish it off, I tied a bow with the ends of the Baja Breeze ribbon.  I like the femininity of this card, but I have one husband and two sons that I don't think would appreciate receiving it.  Maybe my son would like to give it to his wife.  Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend; take some time to have some creative fun.

Your card is what I call Sa Weet! Your card does have lots of feminine details, which are totally delicious, but it also has a couple blue hues to create a bit of balance. Smiles, Elizabeth

Wow, did you work out your punches on this card! I love the colors and that they're not the usual red and white or pink and white. Lovely!
