Elegant Valentine

The current challenge for Impression Obsession is Sparkle & Shine--perfect for a Valentine!  I love this IO fancy heart & decided to use my old JudiKins Egyptian Gold embossing powder.  It gives the most beautiful sparkly results. This IO sentiment works for friends or family--so glad I got it.  I've had the gold Class A'Peel stickers forever, but thought gems & pearls looked better. However, I found these match the gold ep, look beautiful on vellum & are flat for mailing!  Think this will go to a couple in our family--no pink or flowers. Just realized I could change the sentiment & use this for a wedding or anniversary card.  I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday & since several scraps were used it's going to Pixies Snippets Playground.  Thanks so much for taking time to check my blog.
Edited to add: Also entering at Time Out Challenges.
