Happy XOXOXO Anniversary

Happy Tuesday Friends!
It's time once again to share an inspirational creation using die cuts for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog using dies carried at the Dies R Us Online Store.
Even though it's getting close to Valentine's Day and we are all concentrating on making those 'loving' creations, I know there are some people who actually choose that date for their wedding day so I felt an Anniversary card was in order.
What do you think?

The dies used on this creation are:
Impression Obsession 'Layered Hearts' #DIE056
Impression Obsession 'Cupids' #DIE125
Cheery Lynn Designs 'Happy' #B226
Happy (Set of 2) - B226
Anniversary Mix and Match Words - B243

The 'heart' and the 'cupid' have been die cut twice ... once in white and once in red.
After using E6000 Spray Adhesive to attach my heart die cut to a lighter red panel, I filled in the full hearts with those die cut from the deeper red paper.  A white Gelly Roll pen was used to add the outline dots.  For the cupid I offset the white cupid atop the red cupid to give the illusion of a shadow then popped it up with dimensional tape.  I love how this came together!
