Valentine's Day Card Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the Valentine's Day Card Blog Hop with Amanda from Love Joy Paper February 3 &4.  You should have gotten here from Adele's blog.  If not, join in on all of the creativeness by starting the blog hop from the beginning at Amanda’s blog.
Amanda sent out goody packages with some My Minds Eye and Pink Paislee patterned cardstock, some twine from The Twinery, buttons she made using Paper Trey Ink dies, and some bling by Kaiser Craft to make a card for her blog hop.  We needed to use at least half of what we received and we could add our own additional stuff.  It has been a while since I made a shadow box card so I dug out the transparencies!  

Sorry about the darkness, I forgot how hard these things are to photograph. 

 In addition to the supplies that Amanda sent me, I used Kraft and vanilla colored cardstock, a  transparency, a few pieces of Bazzil ribbon from my stash and variety of ink and Stickles!  
I <3 Stickles!

 Stickles: Fruit Punch and Diamond
It's hard to see, but I also used Platinum Pearl Liquid Pearls on one of the die cuts.

 I used foam tape to raise one of the hearts to give it dimension.

 Since I have been blog hopping, I have learned to add
a little decoration to the inside of my card as well. 
I really like the finished look.
"Love" Stamp is Inkadinkado - Scrapbook Sentiments (98625)

Finally a side picture to show that I doubled the 
foam tape to create the shadow box effect.

Now, for some BLOG CANDY!!
