Be My Valentine

My son asked if I could make a Valentine's Day card for him to give to his fiance, and this is what I came up with.

This was a fun card to make.  After coloring Deacon on his swing with copic markers I cut him out using my Fiskars Fingertip Blade. The Plaid Heart is a left over from the Valentine's I made for my daughter's classmates.  I just used an embossing brush with Studio G Chalk to give it the redish/pink color.  The Hearts Roller stamp was not as easy to use as I thought it would be when I made that purchase a couple of months ago.  Not sure I like how that part of the card turned out.  I layered the plaid heart and Deacon on top of a chipboard heart, which I left white, and wrote the sentiment by hand around the edges.

I'm submitting this card for the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #44, and the Catch the Bug - Anything Goes Challenge.
