A Quick Make for Valentine's Day!

Hi all,
Happy Burns Night to you all! I hope you had haggis for your tea & addressed it properly!!!
Anyone who doesn't live in Scotland may well be wondering what on earth I'm talking about!
Today is the birthday of the famous Scottish Poet, Robbie Burns & we do like to celebrate his life & his work!
I just had a little bit of time to get this card together yesterday while my dearly beloved was out for the evening!

(Sorry about the pics, it looks squint in every one! I can assure you it isn't in real life!)
I used a Pyramage design sheet from Card Making Downloads. It was designed by Elaine Hayhoe & I love working with her designs for quick and simple cards!
The sheets generally include a matching backing paper or two which is always a bonus!!!
For speed I used a diamond top card template, created by the lovely Debbie Lauder, this is available on both Craftystash & Card Making Downloads it cuts out any need for measuring as it's all done for you!
I printed one of the backing papers on to the cardstock, returned it to the printer & printed the template on the other side! I then cut it out, scored, folded & went around the edges of the diamond top with some distress ink.
I placed a matt of silver star holographic card on to the diamond. then cut out the pyramage, inked the edges with the same ink and built it up using foam tape. (I tend to use only half of the sections provided!)
I then glued the pyramage on!
He's such a cute little dude don't you think?
Finally I glued the sentiment to the same star holographic card & mounted it at the bottom of the card again with foam tape! I added a few little hearts & a red, red rose.
Couldn't be without one on Burns Night now could we!
