Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

We used some of these hearts on a very similar card for my last class.  I put some
leftovers on a new to me embossing folder (thanks D).

I punched a tiny heart and some little circles from gold foil to coordinate with the foil
lines on the decorative paper hearts.

I'm also sending a nod to my friend Darnell who is challenging herself.  This week her
challenge is die cuts.

I love those pretty floral die cut hearts Bonnie, and the added punched gold foil heart and the little dots look great over that very pretty embossed background, and the strip of lilac down the left side complements it perfectly...a gorgeous card. x

Lovely card. I didn't make valentines this year as I had a leftover stash to use, this makes me want to pull out some of my dsp and make some more. You make CAS look so elegant.
