Be Mine

Hi everyone! Wow, it's been almost a month since I've posted anything and it is nice to be back. I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and new year! We certainly did although I am making a resolution to do less for the holidays this year so I can get out of the kitchen. Making Cheese and Chicken Enchiladas for Christmas Eve and Moussaka and Baklava for Christmas Dinner plus all the cookies (5 different kinds including decorated sugar cookies) and pumpkin bread kept me in the kitchen for 3 days. Granted I put it all on myself but that's just me =).

So here is my first (posted) card of 2013 and I've got to say I am in love with it. I would love for DH to give me something like this for Valentine's Day. It's so whimsical and cute.

I created the banner with scraps of cardstock and cut doily. I used foam tape to give the banners lift and added some bling. Red and white twine bows add the cutest touch don't you think?

The "be mine" is actually printed on vellum. I think it looks pretty cool against the heart cardstock. The little heart in the middle is a epoxy heart sticker that says "4-ever".

I am linking this up with the following challenge:
