For my card today - I drew inspiration from the colors in the inspiration pic (pink, gray and white) and also the sweet hearts that are coming out of the pitcher - so for my card I used the little heart dies From The Heart (die set) to create a banner and the Jotted Heart die (larger heart die) to stamp on the sentiment from the More than Love stamp set

I also used the sketch from the Mojo Monday sketch #383 for this week: love how this card turned out:



Here is a close up of the card - I created a banner by adhering the hearts on dimensionals and then added a line of liquid pearls above them to give the illusion of string - and then tied some twine on the ends of the banner as well as adding some pearls around the card:



Card Ingredients: 
StampsMore than Love stamp set from Verve stamps
Papers: pink DP from Stash, Metallic gray and silver cardstock
Inks: Angel Pink and Rose Red ink from Memento inks
A Cut Above Dies from Verve: From The Heart (die set) to create a banner and the Jotted Heart die (larger heart die) on which I stamped the sentiment

Accessories: liquid pearls, MS chunky glitter, pearls, corner rounder, foam dimensionals and white gel pen

I loved making this fun Valentine's Day card and can't wait to see what everyone else has created:
