My Funny Valentine

This is my entry for the Creative Scrappers Challenge sketch #89 and Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge. I have used the 'Bloom and Grow' papers from My Mind's Eye and some free My Mind's Eye papers that I got with a magazine last week. The image is stamped with Vintage Photo distress ink and lightly water-coloured using the same ink.
I have added a little lace trim here and there. The little wooden hearts are coloured using Tattered Rose distress ink and stamped using Vintage Photo. The paper hearts are cut out using Nesties and my Cuttlebug.
I have distressed all of the paper edges to give it a more vintage feel.
