Happy Valentine's Day

Three of my favorite cardmaking challenge blogs have nice Valentine's Day themes so I wanted to submit my card to these great sites towards their fun themes:

Sentimental Sundays... Love is in the Air
Gingerloft wants to see the color red.
Allsorts has a Valentine's Day challenge. 

Here is a card I made for someone to give to her husband:

The base is a light brown.
I stamped "I love you" in red ink for the background.
I punched a heart in the red paper, layering it on black.
The red layer has distressed edges.
I used a gel pen to make the stitching and initials on the heart.
"be my Valentine" is from a new to me block magnetic set of many words that I recently bought.  I stamped it on the same red paper.  Then cut it out and glued on the red layer just to give it some dimension.
Tied it together with twine before gluing down to the base.

Sometimes my cards seems simple but they can have many steps!  I enjoyed putting this one together.
Thanks for swinging by!
