Pink and Black Valentine

Pink and Black Valentine - Our challenge this week at Crafts 4 Eternity is valentines or love themed projects. This is my valentines for my crop group. Milly and Betty don't look!

My card is a really simple one. I used Yellow Bicycle's Love Letter DP.

The "rose" is made with a strip of pink fabric and Scrap Happy glue. Word to the wise, I used wax paper for the glue foundation and it did not come off like it did in Melissa's video at the Rubber Cafe. Try something else. I ended up having to cut close to the flower, in order to hide the wax paper. 

The leaf is SB. The swirls are Want 2 Scrap. 

The border is also a SB die. I really love how elegant it is.

I stamped my sentiment inside.

Here is the lot of them. One for each of the ladies.
