Sweethearts and Roses

Hello All!
It's the 2nd Wednesday of the Month and time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  Today 'Sister' Terri is our hostess and she's asked us to make something for your Sweetheart and include a Rose on it since Valentine's Day is just a few days away.

 I just LOVE some of the new 'heart' styled dies I've recently purchased at the Dies R Us Store and couldn't wait to create something with this particular die!  Isn't it pretty!  
The heart pieces actually cut out so I've saved them for use on the inside of my card and filled the heart spaces on my card front with Liquid Pearls.  I also used Liquid Pearls around the one side of my die cut Spellbinder heart panel.
OMG I've had these design papers in my stash for years (does that tell you I have too much paper?  lol)  And these red silk roses are also oldies but goodies!!

I hope you'll pop on over to the Sisterhood and see the amazing samples my 'sistah's and step-sistahs' have created for your inspiration!  THEN of course come join in the fun!

Darlene - thank you for the comments you leave for me! I came over to see what you are up to - and found this great Valentine card!
I am especially struck with the design you have created - it is so nicely balanced with the placement of the elements: The pearls on the heart balanced by the roses on the right side, the three larger pearls on the bottom right giving weight to that corner and the Liquid Pearls filling the hearts anchoring the left side. You have successfully allowed the eye to circle around your design & the sentiment - nicely done!
