Stempelglede DT - Vintage Valentine Card

Good morning!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend!  I have a Valentine card to share today using two different Stempelglede collections: Grunge Flourish Hearts and Vintage Garden.  I wanted to combine hearts and roses as they're such classic Valentine symbols.
In the centre of my card I have stamped one of the hearts from Grunge Flourish Hearts with Archival ink in Coffee.  I have then stamped the heart again, coloured it with copics and added it to the centre of the original heart on foam pads.
In each corner around the heart I have stamped part of the flower stamps from Vintage Garden so that the roses were the main focus.  Again these are coloured with copics.  I've added some touches of gold to the stamens of the cream flowers with a gel pen.
I have used Martha Stewart Heart Lace punch along the edges of the card and the bottom of the image.  The lace is from The Ribbon Girl and the flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
I also added another collection of flowers and ribbon at the other side of the image.
I stamped the backing paper all over with the flower stamp from Vintage Garden to create a Toile du Jouy effect.  The heart tags were cut with a Magnolia Doohickey die.
I hope you like it and thank you for your visit!
