A different valentine...

Who says a valentine card must be pink or red? You can create a lovely effect by using creams or light pastels and pairing it with a clean white.

This card features two die cut hearts in a glitter white surrounding a Nestabilites die cut in "beaded oval." The valentine sentiment (Craft Smart) is stamped in slate gray and is surrounded by white pearls and bows embellished with white paper roses.

This card is submitted to challenges by The Shabby Tea Room requiring a white and bright card (see their lovely inspiration photo); Tuesday Throwdown #32 requiring a valentine theme and Southern Girls #10 with a "lovey dovey" theme.

Where did this creative adventure take me today...well, I had embellishments all over the floor and trust me I have way too many boxes of this stuff.  So, this little creative adventure forced me down the path of reorganizing all this stuff.
 Stay warm harted,
