Loves Best Wishes

Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I can't believe that is only a month away from Valentine's. Here is a card I made for  The Midnight Madness sketch challenge #86.
I used Stampin Up White and Pink Cardstock. Swirled paper by The Paper Studio. The tag is Stampin Up Whisper White CS with white swirl vellum from The Paper Studio. The stamp used is a retired SU set "Feathered Friends". The stamp image is embossed using Ranger Silver Embossing Tinsel. The red heart is glittered using Martha Stewarts Garnet glitter. The large heart eyelet on the tag is from Making Memories. The red foil hearts are recycled from Christmas candy wrappers, and the ribbon and bow are from the dogs groomer. I am always looking for ways to recycle items. The decorative flourishes are by Sizzix and I covered them with Silver Embossing Tinsel by Ranger. Please share your creations at the MMSC.
