My Heart Is Yours

I made this valentine card using this adorable Magnolia stamp called Bon Voyage Tilda. The base of my card is black. I embossed a piece of white cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder and backed it in pink cardstock and added it to the black card. I punched a strip of black cardstock using a lace heart border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and added a pink and a black ribbon to the top of it. Then added it to the bottom of the card. I added Tilda so she was sitting on the top of the ribbon. I added a pink bow made out of the pink ribbon and added a heart shaped charm with the word love on it just below the bow. I punched 2 hearts (1 black and 1 pink) using a scalloped heart punch from Fiskars. I added black pearls to the pink heart and white pearls to the black heart. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut out around it and added it to the hearts. I finished off the card by adding black pearls to the top corners.
