Valentine for a Friend

I love making Valentines & they need to be in the mail before long.  Decided to use the SSS Zig Zag stencil to decorate my Memory Box heart die cut. I used a dauber with Distress Ink festive berries. 
The red glitter paper didn't get used for Christmas cards & thought it'd be beautiful for Valentines. I love the inlaid die technique & used the negative glitter panel for my stenciled heart. The inspiration for the Stampin' Celebration challenge is beautiful with red & white hearts and pink flowers, which helped me finish the card.  I die cut MFT pink felt with MFT rolled roses & the sentiment is from SSS Warm Wishes set.  
The panel is mounted to the card front with foam tape.  This is my entry for SSS Flickr challenge 10

  9. This is so pretty. I'm using my red shiny paper that I have left from Christmas too! I love how you did the zig zag and those flowers are the bomb. Our Colts didn't play well at all, uninflated balls or not! It made no difference but people are really upset about it. Not here, but the media. I was so happy to see the Seahawks win and what a win it was! I'll be rooting for them in the SB
