I Love U ~ The Cutting Cafe DT Day

Good Morning Everyone!!
This week Regina asked The Cutting Cafe DT to showcase
some awesome Valentine's Day sets...

I chose to use the background images from Feb 14 and Fun With Valentine's Day
and here is what I came up with......
When I started my card....I had something completely different in mind.
Now that I have it completed I LOVE the way this one turned out!!
My card base is Kraft card stock A2 size
Designer paper is from My Minds Eye~ Love Me
I used the 2 files from The Cutting Cafe~ re sized them and printed them on Kraft card stock
To all the edges I used my Tim Holtz Distresser
and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
The "I" and "U" are Tim Holtz Grunge Board Letters that I inked also with Gathered Twigs and Fired Brick Distress Ink
The heart in the middle was cut using George and Basic Shapes Cartridge
I stamped it using My Creative Time~100% Sweetness heart stamp....LOVE It!
That too was inked using Fired Brick

So I hope you like my Valentine's Day card?!?
Remember to head over to The Cutting Cafe to check out the rest of the DT's projects
