Streaming Heart: So Loved

I have one more Valentine to make so I flipped through my stash looking for hearts that I hadn't used yet and came up with this heart by Simon Says Stamp and the background by Honey Bee Stamps

Streaming Heart

It's a big heart and I wasn't sure how to do a sentiment with it - especially since I had used that cover plate for the background so it was hard to stamp there. I was looking at what I had cut and thinking that I should have done some in patterns because although I love the colors, it didn't wow me.  That's when it occurred to me that I could add a sentiment on one of the streaming pieces!!  I found a straight stamp that worked and I curved it ever so slightly so that the sentiment was streaming too!  (I probably still should have done a few pieces in patterns. Oh well, it's already in the mail!)

I like a hint of black on my cards - I feel like it gives it some depth. I added a thin black mat, then I needed to pull some black into the rest of it so I added five little black gems.

And now I'm done with Valentines. (I don't make many so it wasn't hard to do.)  However, I do make a lot of Easter cards so definitely time for me to move on to the next holiday!
