this is the updated of this card. added sparkles to each heart and used glimmer mist on the rest of the card. I added ribbon also.

I got some patterned paper the other day, I was determined to move out of my comfort zone and make a card totally different from what I am used to.
So here is the end result.
Patterned paper from SEI
Carts used: Sweethearts, Designers Calendar, Pagoda, Walk In My Garden
I had my husbands parents in mind as I made this. They have been married for nearly 61 years and I wanted to celebrate that this Valentine's day - which is why this is not your typical red and white or black and red or white colour combo.

It was time consuming to make, tedious to glue all the bits down, and something is still missing after all that
Otherwise I am very pleased with the end result, just wish I could put my finger on what is always missing in my cards, I thought it was the lack of patterned papers, but that cannot be it.
If you have any suggestions please leave a comment

Thank you so much for looking
