A Valentine- Victorian Romance

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing my first Valentine card for 2013. That day will soon be here! 
Inspired by the fun sketch at Die Cuttin Divas, I wanted to play along with their first challenge of the new year! The white cardstock card measures 5" x 6 1/2". Papers are scraps from K&Company Kelly Panacci Valentine paper pad. I love this paper! In fact, I found the same paper pad during another visit at Michael's last year and just had to buy it! Now I have another full pack!

Cricut Cartridge is Victorian Romance.
The heart with the couple silhouette is the 6th image on the first row and is cut from white cardstock. The blackout image is the 6th image on the second row and cut from a light pink paper. Both cuts are 3.5".
The small heart and heart layer are cut 1". These are the third images on row 3 and row 4. The words on the heart paper are from the poem How do I love thee.

Other supplies include lace and pearls from my stash. The lace is used for one of the elements of the sketch rather than paper. Inking is Dew Drop Versa Magic Gingerbread.
