DH Valentine Card

Well, I finally did a card for DH. Every year I just worry and worry about what to do for him and I finally settled on this design. It's my first attempt at the rolled roses made from scallop circles and they "unwound" a little too much, but I think I am going to like making flowers this way. I wasn't quite sure about the black nestabilities cut but I needed another color for the "rule of three" and I just really like the color combo of red, white and black.

I used SU Real Red cardstock for the base, embossed a piece of Georgia Pacific cardstock with the Cuttlebug embossing folder from the "Love Language" set, Nestabilities scallop oval die was used for the black and white oval layers, Cricut scallop circles were cut for the roses using Lacy Labels with a George circle cut out of the middle and the branches are from Lyrical Letters. The white nestabilitie cut is inked on the edges with SU Real Red Ink. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is my favorite stamp so far this year and is from Repeat Impressions.
