Valentine's card and entry for Valentine's craft challenge on CB forum

This is my entry for the Valentine's craft challenge over on the CB forum- which was to include buttons, beads, ribbon, patterned paper and stamped images! It is also very red and pink + based around a heart shape.

I used heart shaped cookie cutters to draw then cut out the middle aperture bit, then to cut a patterned paper heart shape for the cut out section. I then used double sided sticky paper slightly smaller than that shape and sprinkled dark red seed beads on top (my initials FCC are in the middle of the heart with little diamante beads) as you can see I have done the same on the outside of the card around the heart cut out. I’ve then coloured in a little magnolia stamp of Tilda and Edwin for each side, stuck on top of pink polka dot ribbon. To finish off a little ribbon flower attached with a pearl button.
I might tinker a bit with it between now and 4th Feb- thinking that some glitter is required on the Tilda and Edwin. Obv I also need a message and I think I'm going to make a word cloud on wordle!
