Cupid's Arrow by Laura C

This card starts with a 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" base of kraft cardstock.  I centered a Spellbinder Classic Heart Die in the middle of one side, taped it down to hold it in place, and ran thru my Cuttle Bug.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink to stamp the flourish from the Stampers Anonymous "Fairytale Frenzy" set, and embossed it in pink.  Then I inked this base in Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. The ticket is from the Stampers Anonymous "Love Struck" set, and is also embossed in pink, and then inked with Vintage Photo.  Cupid is also from the "Love Struck" set and is stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink on kraft. I added a little more Vintage Photo ink to fill in the image a bit, and then I sprayed it with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  I put a 5&1/4" by 4" piece of pink  patterned paper that was distressed with Vintage Photo Ink, on the inside of the card.  Then I layered in Cupid so his arrow was hitting the heart on the flourish stamp, and used foam tape to raise up one edge of the ticket....and added some Kaiserkraft
rhinestone bling. Cherry Chocolate Twinkle Jewels add a nice accent in each corner, and a bow and extra bling from my stash finish it off.  

So with a card this pretty....which special Valentine would you send it too??
