Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Wow!!!  Happy Valentine's Day Everyone.  Today I would like to share with you a card that I made.  My inspiration came from the talented Lorriane.  This card is not your standard A2 card.   So let's get started:



Recipe:
 
White cardstock - 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"
Pink cardstock (Coredination "Stiletto") - 5 1/4" x 7 1/4"
White cardstock - 5" x 7"
Patterned Paper (Walmart - Studio G) - 4 7/8" x 6 7/8"
 
White cardstock (stamped sentiment) - 1 3/4" x 1 1/8"


Cricut Cartridge - Sweethearts:
 
<Balloon> Page 32 at 2 3/4" and (2) at 2" - Patterned Paper (Walmart - Studio G)
The strings for the balloons were cut out in white cardstock
 
<Daisies> Page 37 at 2 1/2" - Pink cardstock (Coredination "Stiletto")


Miscellaneous Items:
 
Recollections Floral Embellishments Green and Purple.  I glued down nine green flowers on the daisies image.  Then I glue together one of each color (dark purple and medium purple flower).  I made approximately (15) of these.   After drying, I scrunched them together and hot glued them down on the green flowers.  This gave you a 3D look.
 
Foam tape for the balloons, sign, and the daisy image
White gel pen for the balloons
Studio G "Happy Valentine's Day!" stamp
Momento Tudexo Black ink
ATG Gun
