Valentine's Day card for someone special

As soon as I saw the Penny Black stamp I've used on this card I just HAD to have it!

 My OH has five guitars so you can see why this little hedgie image caught my eye. It's a Penny Black of course and called 'Hmm' which is very appropriate if you have a rose clenched between your teeth!

I coloured the hedgie image using Aquamarkers and then layered the die cut image (using square Nestie label set) onto some yummy sparkly heart design card with a heart shaped doily behind it, which was in turn layered onto a black A5 card with silver foiling round the edges.

As it's for a chap I didn't add flowers and ribbon for a change - just a couple of charms (one is a guitar of course!) and a Bazzil Basics Half The Edge strip in black which is topped off with a couple of glittered white heart shaped buttons. They took AGES to dry and I had to keep my craftroom door firmly closed - they were then threaded with with red and silver embroidery thread. I printed the sentiment and then die cut it...and in case you're wondering what the rest of it says, here's the insert .......rubbish photo though :)

Aaaah, doesn't Valentine's Day bring out the romantic in all of us!!
