 Time is speeding by and I still have Valentine Cards to make! I inked up a favorite Flourishes set #SS182 Love Sweet Love (retired) for the image on the front of the card. I used Spellbinder's Decorative Labels 28, Labels 28 and Labels 21 for the layers and card base.

My poor Copics were getting a bit dusty. I've been doing so many "die" focused cards lately. No worries, they dusted off easily! The background was colored with E50, direct to paper, not airbrushed. The other colors are here and there, just a quick color on the image. 

I added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to 3 of the hearts.... which looks sparkly and great in person, but a little strange in the above picture! 

The sentiment is from the Roses are Red Set which is still available. The button row are stamps in the Country Charm Borders set, also still available.
