touch of love

Hi friends! I'm starting to work on my Valentine's Day cards- early!  I thought I would get back to using challenges for inspiration, so I based this card off of the Cards Blog challenge.  We were given Maile Belles card for a basic guide:

You can see that my interpretation is pretty close to the original!  I tried to use the same colors and the same layout- I guess I don't trust myself creatively just yet.  :)  On to the supplies:  I bought a pack of paper at Target's dollar spot last week, hence the glittery aqua paper.  I have to thank the dollar spot also for the tag, rick rack, and pink scalloped border.  The kraft cardstock was a scrap, and the quote is from Joann's.  The epoxy cupid embellishment is Making Memories and the love letter image is Hero Arts. 

My friend is an English professor, so I thought the whole poetry idea would suit her for Valentine's Day!  :)  Hope you like this card, thanks for stopping by!

PS- What a difference the staging/photo quality make!  I'm almost embarrassed to have my photo near Maile's! lol
