Hi everyone!!!!

I've made a Valentine's card for my DH, using the sketch over at the Freshly made Sketches Blog. 
This is the lovely sketch for the week:

and here's my card:

Dp strip from KaiserCraft.
Wonky rectangular frame cut with Spellbinders nesties.
Flourish and daisy dies from MFT.  Banner dies from Verve
Chevrons cut with Tim Holtz Alterations die from Sizzix.
The hearts were gifts from my dear friend, Angela Bode.
Added my usual twine bow and black plastic dots.
Sentiment computer generated.

Thank you so much for stopping by - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!

One of these days Ia m so CASEing your layering! You do an amazing job of it - me... not so much. Do you sketch it out or just start layering?

Your hubby is gonna love this card...made by your hands, from your heart! The white heart really pops against the mustard yellow die (love the color!)

Awesome sentiment font! If you don't mind me asking, which font did you use?
