Play Date Cafe 166 Color Splash & Happy Valentine's

When I saw the Play Date Cafe 166 Retro Color Splash, I knew I had to play along with the Close To My Heart January stamp of the month, Happy Valentine's.  Isn't this a gorgeous color story?  I'm sure you know by now that Emerald is the 2013 color of the year. 

For my card I, I stamped the roses in Black on a White Daisy panel.  I ran a 1" strip of Topiary cardstock across the front.  I folded our Black Tulle ribbon into quarters so that it would fit through the slits in the sentiment panel (cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge) which I then adhered over the Topiary strip.
For the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment, I first inked it up in Topiary and then rolled the scrolled top and bottom in Black before adhering to the Topiary piece.  If you look closely, I used a Black marker to outline the Topiary edge.
Putting the butterfly onto the foundry pin clip was a little harder than I anticipated, but I LOVE how it accents the card!  I couldn't resist a pair of sparkles, even though Hubby may not appreciate them as much as I do. ;)  I hope that he likes his card!
