Valentine's Day Card Series: Card 3

So have you made any Valentines yet?
Here's some more inspiration if you're in need of some!
I have been having fun, fun, fun making Valentines. I just love all the hearts and the pink.
 
My next few cards will come from one of my favorite 6x6 paper pads by My Mind's Eye.
I purchased one of these last week, not realizing I already owned it; so I decided to challenge myself to make as many cards as possible with one.
 
 
I pulled this great text paper with a damask painted type stamp on the left and didn't need much else for a background.
I had a small piece from the pad sitting nearby and it just happened to have part of a label.
So I cut that out and put the two together.
 
Then I pulled out my letter stickers (I'm determined to use them!) and found these great Heidi Swapp rub-ons.
I started from the right and I must confess - the "e" went on so horribly that I almost threw it away.
It was a hot mess! Completely cracked and not sticking. I thought well, they are about 7 years old.
I almost gave up on them; instead, I pulled out my art gum eraser and thankfully the letter rubbed right off.
Then I tried another "e" and to my delight - it worked perfectly!!

I've been organizing my littlest embellies lately so I pulled those out and looked through the brown and pink.

I didn't find anything exciting so I pulled my pink bin and my brown bin.
I quickly found a brown felt heart, some pink pearl dots, a pink chipboard heart and a lovely button.

And here's the finished card!

And the inside...

When I decide who to give it to - I'll stamp a sentiment or write a love note.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for stopping by.

I'll be back soon with more inspiration!

Oooh! So pretty. I love what you added to the inside of the card. I'm also intriqued by your embellishment organization. I like the idea of sorting them by color but I have limited space...I did buy one of those compartment containers though...
