A Simple Valentine

It's not much more than a week until Valentine's Day so it is time to buckle down and get those cards made.
The Friends of Speedy TV (FOSTV) challenge #6 found at Home of Speedy TV is to make a Valentine card. I'm using a Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp set called Love Remains and the paper from the same company is Cherry Slush, Licorice Whips, and Premium Heavy White.

I thought I would leave my rose without color and just put down some Stickles (star dust) for sparkle.. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to score and added a ribbon.  That's it...a CAS card!

We would love to have you join us for this challenge.
