Love Is Sweet

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Love is Sweet...
and so are YOU! that's little bit cheesy, but I tried.  LOL  I used this beautiful Love Is Sweet sentiment on my card.  It's a very pretty transparency that I have been waiting so long to use.  I put this Valentine's Day card together for my parents.  I can't wait to give it to them.  My Dad will say, "Oh, that's nice".  But my Mom will go bananas over it, and I know she will either put it on display in the living room, or frame it, or something crazy like that.  She always makes me feel like a super star when it comes to my cards.
I used one piece of pattern paper from my stash (it's a favorite that I've been hoarding), and I machine stitched around the edge and gave the edges a light inking to make it dirty and shabby looking.  I used some vintage lace (the wide ivory lace) and some older pink velvet Making Memories ribbon that's also from my stash, two May Arts fabric flowers, three little sequins at the top left, some gold twine, ivory button twine, some ivory and pink blush seam binding, and a vintage button in the center of the bow.

I'm playing along here, in these challenges:
