In The Mood For Valentine's Cards!

What could be better than pink and red on a cold, snowy, blustery day?  OK....maybe wine, a box of chocolates, a good book, and a nice comfy corner of the couch with a thick, warm blankie.  Now....back to reality (at least for the moment - the wine, etc. thing is not off the table for later). I thought I'd get some of my Valentine's Day cards done.

Stamp:  Magenta (Flowers & Hearts 30.019.N) 
Dies:  Impression-Obsession (Square Shaker Frame Die)
         Spellbinders (Die D-Lites Love You)

I embossed the stamp with white embossing powder, then watercolored the images with distress inks. A little layering, and some crystal clear Spectrum Noir sparkle shimmer, and Nuvo Jewel Drops with Enamel Accents here and there finish off this easy-peasy card.
Here's a close-up to try to show the shimmer....
I'll add this card to the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoasterstampers  and the Allsorts Challenge (no patterned paper).

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you're staying comfy, cozy, and warm.  And safe!
