This is the card I made - You Make My Heart Sing
It was made for my DH, my true Valentine and the love of my life…

Ingredients:
A cream CS for the card's basis
Red leather textured CSShiny gold paper, its border punched using Martha Stewart Large Punch around the Page - Double Arches set (I used only the border punch here)
A recycled musical notes paper (from an old booklet)

Michael Strong's Cloisonné Heart stamp (large), stamped and heat embossed with gold EP, cut with nail scissors and glued 3D for extra dimension
The text "You Make My Heart Sing" was printed in red and glued on red leather textured CS as its background. Then each word was separately glued 3D for extra dimension
Red satin ribbon, and red blings, to add some glam.
