Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
I hope your day is filled with . . .

My day started out very sweetly by coming downstairs to find my dear husband had repurposed not only the box I made for him last year that I had filled with chocolate kisses but also the card I had made him which I simply signed LOVE YOU!     
I must confess ... even though he did 'repurpose' ... he exchanged the chocolate kisses for a pair of petite diamond earrings in the box ... what a SWEET, SWEET surprise!  Such a sweetheart!!  

Today I decided to play in a few LOVE(ly) challenges before the time slips away
and created this card using one of my new dies from Dies R Us.

The die cut I'm referring to is the Frantic Stamper Elementals #12 - Ovals and Filigree Frame.
Isn't it pretty and I didn't even use the several ovals that come in the center,
I wanted to use just the frame for simple elegance.  This card would even make for a pretty Wedding card.

I've also used the Poppystamps 'Heart Swoosh' die across the front.
My sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread 'Wedding Blessings' stamp set.

Here's a peek at the inside utilizing the cut outs from my dies.
The red & pink from the frame and the heart from the 'swoosh' die.
