I am now full bore into Valentine's projects.  Just when I think I've found my favorite season, another one comes along and I love creating for that one just as much as the last!

I love this vintage "LOVE" word art from Free Vintage Digital sure to visit and browse the site, she's got some lovely images.  I've been quite inspired there lately.

I went back to basics on this card, nothing too elaborate.  I wanted the word art to be the focus and I think that mission is accomplished due to its size and position.  The only detail that you don't get credit for in the overall photo is that the bottom edge has been cut with decorative scissors, revealing a bit of the inside, and "stitched" with fiber ribbon.
