To The One I Love

Evening Folks
Just been like Grand Central Station here.  My youngest daughter is home from uni for a few days.  Has gone out tonight with her big sister and some friends clubbing.  They decided it would be a good idea to have pre drinks at our house.  They are a lovely bunch of girls but the noise and laughter.  Must be getting old I suppose.  And it is pouring down with rain and not one of them has a coat on.  Well they needn't come running to me when they catch pneumonia lol.
Anyway, been working on a couple of my DT cards tonight but managed to get this little one done.  It is a Valentines card for my hubby.  Kept it quite simple as he is not really into fancy frills and the like.
The 'with love' stamp is from Papermania and I just love it.  So simple but very effective.  I simply coloured the hearts and the letter L and added a little heart gem to the L.  The background paper is also from Papermania.  It is actually lots of different size hearts is varying shades of red.  Used black and red card for the matting and layering.  Used some white ribbon and red flower lace at the side.  The butterflies were punched out of red cardstock and vellum.  I then used black gems on the body and varying sizes of pearls to create a swirl effect from each one.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - #46 Use the word Love
Crafty Ribbons - #11 Love is Red and Black

Thanks for popping by.  Got a crafty day out with my Mum tomorrow.  We are going to Colemans Craft Warehouse at Rushden.  They have got one of their demo weekends on.  No doubt I will pick up some new supplies and hopefully, maybe a bargain or two.
