Love/Valentine Card ~ Hearts Galore {1st Post}

For this card I used many of the same materials from my 1/9 post card
but changed things up a bit.
I changed the format from landscape to portrait.
I stamped and colored the heart flower image.
Then I added little heart leftovers from the border die.
I framed them up with ovals
this time including mint green in the color combo.
The back ground is embossed with {you guessed it} hearts.
I alternated red, mint and brown hearts in the heart border.
{yes I glued those little leftovers there, too}

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment and flowers from the No Matter What stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Border cut using the Scalloped Trim Trio border die set from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Cross My Heart folder.
*Ovals cut using the Classic Ovals Large and the classic Ovals small die sets from Spellbinders.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Memento Rich Cocoa stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.
