Hearts & Flowers

I'm glad I finally had the opportunity to use this charming image of two angel children embracing. Sometimes when I make collage cards, I make several elements and then decide not to use all of them. I move them around the card to see what fits and sometimes I have extra elements that just don't work into the design. So I set them aside for a later work. That was the case with the angels. I made them in the fall when I was making a lot of Christmas cards and had them ready for a card but it just didn't work out. I decided to make one last Valentine's card and use them on that. The card doesn't have to be used as a Valentine. It could be used to express any kind of love or affection - mother's day, a sister's birthday or other occasion.
The main image of the angels was stamped with Versamark on vellum and embossed with gold EP and then layered over a small scrap of DP. All the rest of the DP on this card is from SU's LeJardin (retired) designer paper.
