I will enter this in the Cricut Cardz challenge for this week, which is to make a valentine for a man.
Valentine for my dear hubby. I wanted to try a circle easel card to try to match my theme. I used my new Summer in Paris cart for the balloon, StoryBook for the accents behind the balloon, Home Decor for love, and the small flourish on the left is actually a left-over cut-out that is highlighted by a red gemstone. The inside circle was enhanced with "swirls" from my Cuttlebug and the edges were inked in a mauve/pink. The ballon was "popped" to add dimension. A smaller 1/2 circle was used to mat the computer generated sentiment which says -My heart has wings when I'm with you - and if you look closely, you will see that I have used the MS Christmas branch punch to accent the inside. I will add a personal greeting to the inside for my "Valentine." Here's to love! TFL!
