Valentine's Day card for my Husband

I know Valentine's day is over but I wanted to share with you the card that I made for my husband. Sometimes it can be hard to make cards for men and not have them look too pretty, especially Valentine's cards. I used a color combination of black, red and pink for his card. The way I look at it is, it's Valentine's and I think it's ok to use a little pink and have a little frill, just not over the top.

Here is the card that I made for him.The image in the center of the man and woman is from the Romance Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secrets. I used my Oval Nestabilities S4-110 from Spellbinders to cut out the image and then cut out another oval from cardstock for the mat behind the image. The designer paper (flocked pink swirls) is from Chatter Box and all of the other cardstock is from WolrdWin. The designer paper started out as a pretty soft pink and with a cotton ball I added black ink to the paper. It toned down the pink a little, made the flocked swirls pop and gave it a darker look. I also cut and embossed a couple of hearts using the Classic Heart S4-136 and the Scalloped Heart S4-137 die templates from Spellbinders. On the side I used a Martha punch and added black ink. To finish of the card I added a heart shaped charm, ribbon and a light mist of Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angles.

Here is a close-up of the front and the sentiment.I also wanted to share a picture of these SWEET little Chocolate heels--I love them!!! These were in with my Valentine's presents from my husband. They are sooooo cute!!Supplies~
