Gradient Hearts

How about a quick and easy Valentine? I had this vision of gradient hearts ascending a tall card. The end result is very different from the card I had dreamed up...but isn't that usually the case? Reality rarely follows the instruction of imagination! Even so, I love it still.....I adore red and pink all cozied up together, like peas and carrots!

 I especially like this card for its quick assembly, and use of scrappy bits of paper. I used 3 heart punches and and several shades of red, pink and a few bitty white hearts to top it off! Lovin' the red cord brad, reminds me of velvet covered chocolate boxes, so dreamy!

This sentiment heart was in a package of die cuts I picked up recently from K&co, super cute! I had to add a little glitter...just a little! ;D  I hope you like this sweet little Valentine, now if you could help me decide who to send it to! *giggle*
{Love love}  happy creating~

Another stunner - love the vertical length and the "rising" hearts The colors are perfection - and the little corduroy brad with the twine and ribbon, lovely!!! It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, the glitter was a must!
