I've picked up some kind of bug, and don't feel much like being on the computer, so I'll make this really short. ;)
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout, and used dp from the Sweet Cakes 6x6 pad by Doodlebug Designs for my layers. The notebook paper is actually a Verve die cut from the Sweet Cakes pad. The diagonal strip is a piece of Washi tape on white cardstock. After stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, I colored it with Copics. The hearts were cut with another Verve die, then heat embossed with Red glitter embossing powder. The image and hearts are all attached with Coll-All 3-D glue, so that the little leaves on the image could be supported and the hearts could be tilted on one side rather than just lying flat.
The hearts on the inside were die cut from the scraps from the front of the card. The cherry sentiment is from the same set as the image on the front, and the Valentine's Day sentiment is from a retired Hero Arts set. I sponged Spun Sugar Distress Ink inside the die before stamping.

And, that'll do it for me today!
