Happy Valentine's Day, Hubbs!

He truly is my Valentine, everyday! Love him to pieces, he could not be more perfect to me...   So here's his card (now that he's seen it cuz he follows me -- teehee)!
So this card started with a "faux mother of pearl"  panel ala Loll, on watercolor card with Distress Inks and a pearlized white paint.  I used her wonderful tutorial, and played with a few different inks.  I thought this one fit best, then used a die for the heart, using only the positive.  I also added a small die arrow to point to "my heart".

 I then heat set the sentiment on a strip of "cloudy" vellum with silver EP, applied it with vellum tape under the side edges, then sprinkled a few sequins...
I finished off the inside with a sentiment as well.

  1. What a great Valentine for your hubby! The background is fantastic!

  2. Looks like I need to find time to watch Loll's video! TK this is gorgeous! He follows you? Now THAT is a sweetheart!

  3. This is a great guy Valentine, TK! And that's not easy to do! The Mister reads me, too. (At my age, I need him to tell me if I have a big typo I need to fix, lol!) I just noticed that I wasn't on your followers thumbnails and I thought I was ... maybe you just added the button. Anyway, rectified now! BTW, congratulations to your son on his engagement, too! That's happy news! Hugs, Darnell
