Valentine Amour....

Hi everyone hope you are all warm and cosy in this awful weather, we didn't get much snow but it is bitterly cold with some snow flurries a great excuse to stay in and craft!
My make this morning I think will be my last with a Valentine theme, I can't remember the last time I made so many projects with a hearts or Love theme.  We do not normally give cards to each other but I do get a very large bouquet at Valentines......when I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday I fell in love  and just had to use it to make a Valentine card for DH......he will be very surprised lol!!! 
Week #193 sketch challenge is sponsored by Art Journey and I adore their stamps unfortunately I do not own any but they are on my ever growing wish list. 

I have turned the sketch for my card hope this was ok and used card, paper and stamps from  Stampin' Up! Ink Tim Holtz distress colours fired brick and black soot.

My card base is kraft, Nestabilities were cut from kraft and very vanilla, inked and stamped from Artistic Etchings set, all the paper used is from a retired SU set sorry can't remember the name, hearts were punched with SU 3 heart punch, finally I added some bling...just a little......because I can...lol.
