Still In Love

My husband does not like Valentine's Day.  That was hard when we were first married (okay, for the first 20 years!).  But his not acknowledging a commercial day no longer gets under my skin and I do not interpret it as a lack of love.  We have been married almost 46 years and we love each other more than ever.  After I finally got beyond expectations and comparisons, I could see his love for what it is - true and faithful. 
Even though he does not buy any cards, candy, or flowers, I still show my style of love by giving a card, making a special meal, and a heart shaped cake.
This is the card I made for him:

The sketch I used is the Sketch at My Craft Spot: 
I love the banner dies from MFT.  What is really great is to be able to fold them flat so you can put the card in an envelop and yet it pops up when you take the card out.
The BG paper I used perfectly matched the color of the image.
 I love this digital image but I don't have it anymore because I lost so much when my old computer went down.  So I can't even tell you what company it came from.  I printed it out months ago and just getting around to using it.  If any of you know the maker, please let me know in the comments.  I would love to have it again ( and give proper credit). 

Kaboodle - to my sweetheart 
Sister Act - anything 
Brown Sugar - use punch or die
Stamping Boutique - Valentine/love
Love to Scrap - use the work love
