Happy Valentines Day!

Good afternoon bloggers!
Here's my second post for today!
This is the CAS Valentines Day Card I made for my hubby!

He's watched me doing so many other Valentine cards with 
hearts & red & white papers, I decided to make something a
little bit different for him!I used an A4 sheet of CS 
folded in half & cut into two A6 cards.
I punched a border using a Tonic punch then
 inked the edges with my liquid chalk inkpad.
I added a double bow (which I had tied already for another
project & didn't use) a computer generated sentiment &
some little blue heart shaped buttons which I've had in my stash 
for ages.

The font I have used is Words Of Love & you can 
download it free from here! I reckon that's about as much as I can say 
about this little creation!
Thanks so much for popping in!
