My Valentine

Happy Tuesday, all! Hope you are having a wonderful week. =) Here is my card for this week's Recipe Tuesday over at the PWCO blog. Here is this week's recipe:
  • a circle
  • 2 flowers
  • a bow
Here is my card:

I used the sweet My Vanlentine for this card. They are such a sweet couple! I paired them with the yummy  Hopscotch collection by BasicGrey.

I consider the scalloped circle image combo as a circle. =) The flower is created by stacking the two layered larger flower and the smaller rose, thus fulfills the "2 flowers" requirement. And the bow that the flower is sitting on completes the recipe.

The cute Fancy Hearts border die is from Whiff of Joy Stamps. The sentiment will be on the inside of the card. I haven't decide if this is going to be a Valentine's Day card or a birthday card. I think it could be either, what do you think?

That's it for today. Have a lovely day, my friends! =)
