Romantic Valentine Wishes

I am really having a lot of fun challenging myself to make Valentine cards by incorporating both traditional images with Valentine-themed images. For this Valentine, I chose these two handsome images from the Artistic Outpost Gatsby plate and added this sweet heart image in multiple shades of pink and burgundy from the Artistic Outpost Cutie Pie plate. I just love the vintage feel of Artistic Outpost's images! I chose London Fog Memento Ink for the couple and sentiment to give a bit of a faded feel to my card. The couple were layered onto several doilies and the card was completed with some lace, recycled ribbon, pearls and a flower. I hope your day is going well. Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne
