Love/Valentine Card ~ All I Need Is You {1st Post}

I started out with the week 3 Viva la Verve sketch
and these cute little bears
then let my creative imagination go from there.
First I found these two matching design papers in my matstack stash.
I used the stripes for the background
and the polka-dots to frame up the metal Love brad.
I die cut the heart then embossed it.
Next I added the heart trim where everything meets behind the bears.
I framed up the cute Valentine sentiment and tucked it in with the others.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Bears image called A Gentle Touch from Crafty Sentiments.
*Sentiment from the No Matter What stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Heart cut using the Classic Hearts die set from Spellbinders.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
*Scalloped heart border called from Scalloped Tri Trio from Verve Stamps.
*Corners rounded using a Fiskars punch.
*Sequins from my stash.
*Rhinestones from Darice.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Copics 100, E17, E33 and R83.

May your day always be filled with love.
