There's Only One You {Valentine}

Pin It Now!
This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments, there's a beautiful inspiration photo to spark your creativity!  Look at all the eye (and every other kind of) candy in this picture...
Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #152
Inspiration Photo
I'm on a creative search to make a sweet Valentine for my hubby.  One that I like, too, as I always wind up taking it back to keep in my stash after he's lost track of it :D  In the photo, the envelopes against the wall really stood out - how cute is that?!!  So I made a super CAS card imitating those rectangles. 
The honeycomb embossing makes a clean, white background with just one sparkly red heart, and the heart has doily wings!   

The wings are made from a small section of the new doilies form SU's Artisan Embellishment pack.  I folded it in half, and pleated it back and forth a few times, and fluffed.

And then inside, a very appropos sentiment!
So what do you see in the inspiration photo?  I had so many great ideas...banners, cupcake toppers, repetitive hearts, or just anything red & white.   Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see what everyone has come up with, and join in the fun!
