I Love You

Good Morning!
With February almost here I see so much Valentine inspiration  in blogland & I wanted to make a card too but without using too much red! 

Here's my card for today - 

The focal element of this card is the spot light die cut tag (Paper Trey Ink). 
What is a Valentine card without a heart! I stamped the heart from Simon Says Stamp "I See You" set on the tag such that a bit is stamped off the die cut, on to the card stock. Heat embossed this in silver embossing powder.

I glued 5 tags together for the spotlight effect. I alternated a black & red tag to add some interest & I loved the dash of red popping from the sides. 

I covered the heart, only on the tag with clear Wink of Stella, this created magic & further high lighted the heart.
