More Valentine's cards

Hi bloggers,
I have been missing for a while now... just trying to resettle back and there is so much laundry to do even now. I still hadn't opened the last of my bags - can you believe that? I did that today and feel kind of relieved.

I  have made both these cards with the same swirly ribbon but see how different it looks on both the cards. 

I have used light pink metallic paper and die cut the hearts on this card. 

The pink hearts are recycled from handmade pink paper from Indonesia which was an old gift wrap. 

 I added the gold dots with glitter glue from my stash to match the gold lining in the ribbon.

On the second card, I have die cut the hearts from handmade paper in dull gold and pink (recycled from old gift wrap as mentioned above). 
 I wish the picture quality was better to capture the texture of the paper. The card stock is pearlized and lends a nice touch to the card.

I hope you like my cards.

Monica, these are just beautiful! Love all the little hearts. So pretty. Like how you embossed the hearts on that first card too. Get that laundry done - you're missed out here in blog land!

What lovely cards you have created...love the colour combos. So can relate to laundry and bags. Took me a week to catching up on all my laundry from our holidays.

Monica, your cards are so gorgeous. I just love hearts and you've inspired me to do something with a box! The papers are lovely and the embossing really makes it so beautiful. I love the swirl of dots you created too - you've done an outstanding job as usual!
