CAS Valentine

I saw the cutest CAS valentine on one of the blogs I follow, called I'm in Haven.  Thanks to Lisa for her inspiration.  You can see her card here.  Isn't it sweet?  I love all the white space, it really makes the pinks stand out.  I added some stitching around the edge because I just got a Jenome sewing machine and of course had to use it.  You can see that I'm new at sewing on cards because my lines are a little crooked, but I still like how it looks.  I used My Favorite Things Heart Stax to make a base to glue the flowers onto, Blueprints 20 for the scalloped mat layer and Tag Builder Blueprints 3 to cut out the little hearts at the bottom. 

I made the sentiment for the inside on my computer and added some pink washi tape

Here is a close up of the flower heart.  I used a Viva Ice White Pearl Pen to make the little pearls in the center of the flowers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy Valentine's Day!
