Vintage Valentine

St. Valentine's Day, is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it! I'm a romantic, what can I say? I wanted to make a 'pretty' card to celebrate this event, and this is what I came up with. I used products from everyone, so if you have a questions about a specific product, please post in comments, and I will get that information to you. I wanted a card, that looked and felt 'romantic', vintage, unique. The main image on my card, is actually a label. And yes, its from the most romantic city in the world: Paris, France! I added little touches to give this card some punch. I threaded some beads onto my corsage pin, and tucked it in the flower, and added a half-pearl to the flower center. I adhered some glass glitter on a heart shape to give the card some sparkle. I tied a key onto a button with some linen thread, for a rustic look. I added some crochet trim to a scrap piece of pattern paper, that I used an eyelet border punch on, to help soften the card. All pieces were sponged with a light tan ink, to give everything a distressed look.
Thank you for looking! Let me know what's your favorite holiday.
