For my Pinterest inspired project, I made a Valentine's Day card.  I fell in love with this card that Carol from Carol's Cards had made. I loved the color combinations and the simplicity but elegant layers that it had.  
Here is my version.....I kept it close to the same!
 I used Elegant Edges for the stripe base.  The image is on p. 42 (Dots) and was cut at 3 1/4"
The hearts are from George & Basic Shapes cut at 2 1/2"

The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug: Musical Flourish and I ink around it with Tim Holtz Fired Brick ink.  I added 3 pearls to the hearts.   

Your next stop will be  with the lovely Lori
