Happy Valentine's Day

Hi my dears! I know I'm several months early for Valentine's Day, but I'm barely on time for Cath's Not Your Regular Ruffles challenge on Moxie Fab World. When I saw the beautiful inspiration she offered us for this challenge, I could only think of a heart shape and my mind went to Valentine's Day.

This card has 2 types of ruffles: the scalloped paper "ribbon" and the ruffles on the heart, which I created with distressed 3/4" circles of Riding Hood Red cardstock.

Today I received my first order from Papertrey Ink. I'm very impressed with this company. Their packaging is impeccable. I had to use Background Basics Text Style II right away and their Fresh Snow ink. I'm in love!

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Background Basics Text Style II (PTI), Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!)
