Craftin Desert Divas Challenge- Shaped Card

Hello Crafteteers!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Craftin Desert Divas: Shaped cards.

For my card I went with a Valentine's Day theme and used some product that I recently purchased over or just before the holidays.  For example, the cupid is from Tim Holtz (Mini Love Struck Movers and Shapers die set)...and it was 50% off at Carsand Mosher!  Woot-woot!

Sure, I may have gone a little happy with the gold embossing but I think it adds some elegance to the card.  The double gold embossed lattice heart really accentuates the cupid.
The inside is simply made with no sentiment so that the giver can add whatever heartfelt sentiment they want.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Looking forward to seeing your shaped card at Craftin Desert Divas!
Have a great week.
Kathy Jo
