Love Is In The Air

I was in the mood for Valentine's but decided I didn't want to use too much bright red.  This card is more of a combination of rose and burgandy.  The card base is burgandy with a layer of of light green.  I ran the green layer through a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the cute heart background and used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the delicate lacy heart border on each side.  The larger heart is cut out using a Spellbinder die and the smaller heart is from a Martha Stewart punch.

The sentiment and rose circular border is a JustRite stamp from the Friendship Borders and Centers set.  I stamped it in red distress ink onto a light green circle.  I colored in the flowers and leaves with Tombow markers.  It is adhered to a burgandy circle with pop dots.  The burgandy circle is layered onto a pink circle on which I stamped the circular border sentiment, also from the Friendship Borders and Centers set.  This is then layered onto a burgandy scallope circle.  All circles are cut using Spellbinder Nestabilities.

For the flower, I used paper flowers in two different shades of pink.  On top of this I attached a handmade spiral rose.  I ran a strip of lace with hearts underneath the flower and images.
