Love/Valentines Card ~ Celebrating Our Love {1st Post}

Well if you follow my blog you may remember
I used these little cuties for a birthday card. {here}
Testerday while I was walking through Joanns trying to decide
what to spend my 50% off coupons on I saw this embossing folder
and the idea for this card jumped out at me.
These little sweeties are going to be added to many creations to come.

First I stamped, colored then cut out the bears.
I used them to place the embossing folder just the way I wanted it.
I cut out assorted hearts to add to the fireworks
and a little grass for them to sit and snuggle on.
My original plan was to write Celebrating, Our, and Love
on the three largest hearts but then I liked it just the way it was. 

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Bear digi called Couples from Crafty Sentiments.
*Large hearts cut using the Wavy Hearts Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the Darice Fireworks folder.
*Small hearts cut using a EK Success punch.
*Copic markers E13 and E17.
May your day always be filled with love.
