How do I love thee?

Look at me... getting ahead and making my Valentine card for Mr. KISS  ;-)

This year, to save me spending hours trawling for that perfect image, I have experimented with my nesties.



I admit, it's very strange not having an image as a focal point, but I kind of like the way this turned out.
It reminds me of those Cath Kidston prints.

And - shock horror - I even decorated the inside!

One Stop Craft -  On the Spot and Ribbon
Crafter's Companion - Love is in the Air

Supplies -
The DP is totally gorgeous, but I have no idea what make it is.
I used lots of dies -

XCut Heart Nestie.
DCWV Rub-on love quotes.     
Fine red glitter on the heart, pearls and red satin ribbon, from my stash
