A belated Valentines Day card

Hope everyone has had a good week so far, mine hasn't been too bad although very busy. I made this card last night as I had to somehow get into the Valentine's day spirit. Randolph and I have never been big on celebrating Valentine's day but we did manage to watch a movie Monday night which I thoroughly enjoyed. We watched 127 hours which was an absolutely amazing flick, not exactly romantic but certainly inspiring.

Anyway I love hearts and roses and wanted to combine them on my card in a simple and effective way. Although this card was simple to make in the end, I have to admit it took me ages to come up with the design but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end. The stems and leaves have been drawn on, the hearts have been punched out and attached to the card with self adhesive foam squares, the ribbon is maroon although it looks black in the photo and the bird has been cut out from patterned paper.

I have included the card in the following challenges-
Off the Wall Craftiness-Hearts or Vintage.
2 Sisters challenge blog-Hearts.
Polka Doodles-Thats Amore.
Stamp scrap and doodle Saturdays-Love is in the air.
Crafty Ann's challenge blog-Love is all around.
Delicious Doodles-Valentines Day.
The Crafty Calendar Challenge-Love.
The Stamp Man Challenge-Hearts.
Totally gorjuss-Love.
My time to craft-Hearts and flowers.

thanks so much for visiting my blog and I look forward to reading about what you think of my card.

This card was chosen as the winning card over at Polka Doodles for the "That's Amore' " challenge.
