Valentine's Collage

It was craft night with the girlies last night, and this week we all made collage style Valentine's cards.  I love this style of card making as I'm very much a "more is more" kinda girl, any excuse to layer up the embellishments in a random and haphazard way!
The papers are from two different Papermania packs, I've inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress ink for definition.  The circles were made with Spellbinders dies and circle punches, the rectangle was cut with a Spellbinders die and the hearts were made with Xcut dies.  The larger heart is made from holographic card, and the smaller one from pink glitter card, although this hasn't shown up very well in the photo.  I've added some pretty Papermania shimmer dome hearts and red gems for a touch more bling.  I decided to use some biscuit coloured ribbon, to compliment the kraft card and inked edges, and I finished off with a stamped sentiment, done with a Hobby Craft stamp.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Papertake - Add a Bow & Use a Die
Party Time Tuesday - #156 - Use Ribbon
The Pink Elephant - #234 - Pink Red and One Other Colour - I chose kraft
