To Sir, With Love

Despite the strange things that happened over the weekend, I managed to squeeze this card in! I think I'll be giving this card to my husband this year for Valentine's Day because I really liked that way that the pleating turned out (I layered the paper with some ribbon.) Not that he'll notice, but I will :D I hope you have a fun time making Valentine's Day for your sweetheart and girlfriends!

The charm on this card actually hangs straight down, but it was a quick picture and I didn't feel like fixing so that I could take another picture :P And the wings are actually layered, but you can't tell because of the angle. I feel like I'm making excuses, lol. Oh well, here you go.

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda With Hearts, Whimsy Holiday Postmarks; Paper: BasicGrey Eva and Bittersweet; Ink: Memento, Copics, BIC Mark Its; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, embossing folder, ribbon, Prima flowers, pearls, rhinestone, charm
