Floral Heart Valentine

Fog isn't lifting--should have taken our drive yesterday--LOL!  I'm entering STAMPlorations Jan challenge--stamps & inks.  Love that they allow other company's stamps while I'm saving up to get some of theirs.  
I'm on a roll making Valentines right now, but this is the first one using some vellum--one of my favorite products. My Memory Box heart die is getting a workout while I save up for a few more.  I love the floral hearts & pink/red/orange in some of the inspiration pictures for the PTI Blog Hop today.
I used Distress Inks picked raspberry, ripe persimmon & Memento Love Letter with StazOn Stone Gray for the sentiment. The PTI stamp sets are Floral Foliage, Harvest Berries & Tag-It's #3. I love the softness created with the vellum, but needed a bit of sparkle, so added Stickles to the flower centers. I used some scraps so will also enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add: Also entering the Valentine's challenge at Time Out Challenges.

You are on a roll with your Valentine cards, Greta. As you can see I am working my way backwards, but am lovin' each one I come upon. This one is extra sweet!!

Oh how pretty Greta! Love that MB (Cupid I think) heart die, it's the basis for a few that you can layer on top, although I love how you popped the stamped/patterned vellum into the aperture. And I'm so into stamping sentiments in gray right now as well :)

Hugs

I've been hoping for a vellum comeback since I have so much of it. I like what you did with it here-covering up and softening the opening. Great card and very inspirational! Vellum, here I come!
