A Valentines Card today

Here is the valentines card I have made for my wonderful hubby Barry.

I have made it as an easel card but followed the sketch for the front from Crafts for eternity sketch this week.
The backing papers I have used are from Papermania love 8 x8 paper pad. I have used by Martha Stewart hearts punch on the bottom so that the front will stand up. I have also added lovely heart ribbon from Hobbycraft just above it. On the front of the card I have used the same backing papers. I have used my fiskars heart corner punch on the red card before sticking to the gold backing card. The decoupaged image is from a Forever Friends elements pack. The sentiment is made from gold peel offs on red card and then backed onto gold card. I have used foam pads on both the bear image and the sentiment to raise them from the card.

I have lots of challenges to enter this card into
