4x4 Valentine card with doily background

Hi everyone!  I have another Valentine card for you today!

The doily was cut at 4 inches from the Paper Trimmings cartridge.  I inked all of the edges with brown ink and then sponged on a light coat of glossy accents and added some ultra fine glitter from Stampendous.

The circle was cut at 2.69 inches from the George cartridge.  The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and I used dimensionals under the doily to make it stand out.

The stamped sentiment is from the Always & Forever stamp set and I tied a tiny bow with the Blossom Bakers Twine.

The red hearts were cut at 1.30 inches and 0.74 inches from the Gypsy Font cartridge. I tried a new product on these little red hearts.  I added some goosebumps texture spray.  This was my first time using this and I can see lots of fun possibilities!  It dries really fast and leaves clear bumps.  I think it would be really pretty on paper flowers.  Maybe even for water droplets on a summer themed card or layout.  You can control the size of the 'bumps' by how far away you hold the bottle from the paper.  Hmmmm. . .  could be fun!

Have a happy day!
