How Sweet It Is...

I don't have a lot of extra time to enter challenges but I did have some time this afternoon to create a Valentine's card. 

I began with my Cricut and created an appropriate sized heart to fit the stamp I wanted to use. I also created a ring for the heart to turn it into a shaker card. The other hearts were also cut on my Cricut. I stamped the floral heart image and coloured it, then made it into a shaker. The base of the card was also Cricut cut to allow the shaker to be embedded within the card. Some gold ribbon, gold gems and gold embellishing thread were added, along with the embossed sentiment (in two parts). 

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
