A Beautiful Heart

Hello!  I wanted to share the elegant Valentine my husband and I gave to our 16 year old over the weekend.


I really love how this turned out.  I've got a heart from an old Stampin' Up! set, A Happy Heart, some little paper flowers from www.iamroses.com (you should check them out; cheap prices, cheap shipping, and it's pretty quick, too) and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in Sparkling Clear.


The 'Feb 14' sentiment is from the same Happy Heart set, and of course, some Hug Snug seam binding...this one is called Mushroom.  I love the color.  It goes with just about anything.


Thanks for letting me share this.  I'll be back tomorrow to show a much different Valentine that went to our 13 year old.  See you then!
