You + Me

Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday morning.  Since St. Valentine's Day falls on a Tuesday this year, my Valentine and I are celebrating today...okay, we're not really "celebrating".  I'm giving him this card and he'll be giving me a store-bought card and wearing black.  (He's not much of a Valentine's Day guy, but he's agreed to humor me.)

A Couple Details:
  • The flash card is mounted on a chipboard ticket colored with Distress Stain.  I sketch-outlined the heart with black pen and highlighted it with some Glossy Accents.
  • The card needed some black to keep it from turning too sweet, so I added a strip of Tim Holtz Symphony tissue tape and drew in some black dots with a LePen.  I continued the horizontal lines of the music with some Papertrey Ink baker's twine.  

All in all, a simple card.  But of course, you don't want to get too frilly for a guy card, even if it's for St. Valentine's Day!
