Love U!

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot. This week the challenge is "For Your Sweetheart" Create a Valentine for your sweetheart.
I made this card. I went out of my normal realm and created this shabby chic Valentine's card. I hope you all like it!
I started with the paper really...I used My Minds Eye Love Me 6X6 stack as my inspiration for this card. I cut out the banner from one of the sheets of paper and added a gray strip that I cut out using a pair of decorative scissors. I cut out the heart on my Cricut and also used my decorative scissors to cut the mat around it. I used a chipboard key that I got in a bag of pieces for $1 at Michaels and colored it with a metallic marker. After I colored it I used clear embossing powder on it and heat embossed it. I tied some Ivory Just String through a metal locket charm and attached it to the key. I used My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags dies and Tiny Tags 2 to create the tag and attached it to the card with more Ivory Jute String. To finish the card, I also stamped the inside with MCS's Always And Forever stamp set and added some decorative paper.
I hope you all will play along and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created! Have a great day!
