"Eye Heart U"

It's been a long day at work today, one of those thank goodness that's over. What better therapy than a bit of crafting, so I set about making this years valentines card for my partner. Against my usual style I set about a more simple look than I would normally make just some stamping, texture and minimal embellishment (one old button that I found in a drawer on sunday). Whilst I got urges to add a lot more I think I showed great restrain, mainly as time is against me and I wanted to watch "Inside Men" at 9pm. I am not a huge TV watcher, but this is a "must watch".
Stamps used are :-
Tim holtz - Urban Chic
Wendy Vecchi - an Eye For Art
And a random alphabet stamp
all are stamped in Red magic versa magic (I love the chalk ink effect)
I have added a heart charm urban chic heart stamp which fits perfectly over the heart
finished of with some ribbons for texture

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

thanks as always for looking.
