Hearts and roses valentine

This pretty heart shaped card is for the sweethearts challenge over on Cheery Lynn Blog.   I used the backing plate that come with the heart to heart doily set.  There are the cut out dies and then solid dies for backing on the two largest hearts.   For the center heart I used the smaller size from that set and just drew around it and made my own backing plate.  I ran the top piece thru my vagabond with the 5x7 heart cuttlebug folder and using the brayer and Victorian velvet distressed in I made the Belleek background. The sentiment is from Flourishes new release.  I added some leaves and ferns from a MS punch and some pretty little roses from Prima to finish the card.  Be sure to check out the Cheery Lynn blog and join them, you may win a gift certificate for some of the gorgeous dies!!!!  I'm also adding this to the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.

This is so very lovely Karen. I love that heart doily and I think I should invest in that too. Your arrangement is just perfect! I also am liking lots of the new embossing plates. Too many goodies to tempt me all the time! LOL
