Always and Forever

Here's my last Valentine till next year -  this one will be for my DH, Kent - I created it using this week's  CAS(E) this sketch
I white embossed this lovely Waltzingmouse doily stamp and sentiment on black cardstock.  Then I wrapped a thin velvet ribbon around the black panel, layering it to a red panel and then to the white card base.  To finish it off -I punched a red heart out of a piece of glittery red card stock and adhered it over the ribbon with foam tape.
I just love the look of the traditional Valentine colors!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - doily from Dainty Doilies Large, sentiment from Sweethearts.
Paper:  white, true black, pure poppy - PTI,  red glitter card stock - Michaels
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  heart punch - EK Success, white embossing powder, heat gun, Fresh snow thin velvet ribbon - PTI, Scor tape, foam tape.
