Valentine cased card

My daughter found a card on Pinterest and said mum can you make this card for me for her boyfriend.. Yes sure then when I looked I went hmm.  Gee its hard to case a card I didn't have any of the same stuff. 

Heart.... nope smaller one, yep that should do.
Ribbon....  oh I have that heart ribbon that my daughter gave me off a parcel bit of recycling.
Envelope... hmm that  was tricky but got it, with a little bit of tricky punch manoeuvring.
Embossed background...  Yea that didn't turn out as good as I would of liked but its ok..
Corners.. Tricky and lots of layers, more than it looked at first glance at the card. Had to find a stamp that looked interesting that small.
Love... Yes I found love lol.. 

So here is my version...

So then I had to do a bit of detective work to find the original person to give them credit.. So tracked them down and it is Ellen from the The serendipitous stamper I thought her card was just lovely. So I did my best to case it. So take a look at Ellen's blog as I don't think it is right to copy and paste her card to my blog but the lovely link is there for you to take a peek and tell me what you think..

I would also like to welcome a new follower to my blog Jedd.  Glad you joined as a follower to my little blog..

Have a great day 
Sandy :)
