Valentine Blooms...

Since I have not made a cascading card for my Mom,
I thought it would be nice to do so for Valentine's Day.
This is her card........

I started with a white base, added pink accent panels,
and then inked a white embossed mat.
I used three cartridges for this card -
Damask Decor, Art Nouveau, and Plantin Schoolbook.
All of the smaller hearts are PS, while the larger one on the front
is from DD.  The pretty tulip corner piece is AN and is one of 
my favorite cuts.  The side pieces are also DD and match beautifully.
I did do a little recycling - the dragonfly punches are project leftovers!
The banner stamp is from the Cardz TV Stamps set - It's All About You.

Embossing and popping the images give this card another
added dimension along with the cascade fold.
Using glitter papers on all of the images add sparkle
while glossy accents on the tulip corner, and small gemstones, give
this card the glimmer that a Valentine's Day card deserves!

This card has an elegant flair, and since my Mother is an elegant
and graceful woman, I think this suits her perfectly.
A personal message added to the back of the card
finish it off...along with a few more hearts!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
