CCMC180 challenge!

Hi All,
Back from a wonderful ride on the beach and thought I would post the card from the other half of my card making marathon last night. I had finished my aunts Easter cards and now I need to complete her Valentines. Hopped on over to Create with Connie Mary and checked out this weeks sketch challenge:
Create Sketches Square-019

I liked the layered look. Here is my take on it:
I used the sketch for two different based cards, but the exact same embellishments on each as I couldn't decide which I liked better. When I received my Holly Berry DP I noted the sheets with the roses and thought they would make beautiful Valentines, especially when combined with the sparkly dots! Here is my recipe:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Holly Berry DP
Ink: Real Red
Stamps:Take it to Heart (New for the Occasions mini!!)
Punches: Large heart
Embellishments: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Vintage wallpaper embossing folder, and Very Vanilla velvet ribbon

Hope you like it!

I think this designer paper works great for Valentine's cards! Great idea! I like the way you interpreted the sketch! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

The designer paper certainly looks perfect for Valentines cards and they are both equally great looking cards! Great job and thanks for playing Create with Connie Mary!
