Lovely Left Overs

I made 32 Valentines (8 different layouts) for a women's breakfast at my church.  There were lots of left over pieces which were fun to play with.  This is one of the cards I made with some of those spare pieces.  I've had lots of time to play the past few days while being snowed in. Hopefully we won't lose power and I will be able to post a few more cards this week.

Darice embossing folder
Large heart was cut with the Silhouette
Middle heart was cut with a Cuttlebug die
Top heart was a pre-cut heart that I sponged on color and then put a punched heart in the middle.
The border was made with a punch, using the same designer paper backing the hearts.  I topped the border with the heart lace.
