My Sweet, Sweet Valentine

I had this idea of a heart border for a card and today I drew it up and cut with my Silhouette. I created vertical and horizontal borders and 4 different sizes to fit for A6 and square cards - just fronts or folded to make whole card.
Additionally I embossed the front of my card with my long time favorite TH Flourishes embossing folder and inked everything with various Distress inks.
The flower is made from Saspeso Trasparente technique, which is basically heated and molded plastic - but it looks so well!  I added some green plastic ribbon and some swirls of the same ribbon. For a bit more detail I added that absolutely gorgeous metallic filigree leaf.
Here you can see some more detail of my heart border - I sure will use it in some other projects as well.

I will enter this card into these challenges:
