Happy Valentine's Day

This is my attempt at trying to make a Valentine's Day card for a guy to give a girl.  I guess it sort of worked.  The foiled balloons are actually the candy heart die from the Tim Holtz Crazy Things set, which is how this whole card started.  I wanted foiled balloons.  The bird, hat, and candy were colored using my Zig Clean Color pens and a bit of water.  The background panel was made using a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Outlined, in black, and PTI poppy red, and then attached to a black panel where I used a Spellbinders edge die for the heart border.  Mounted the whole thing to a PTI poppy red card base, and done.

Go make something pretty.  :)
