CAS Valentine

 I made one last quick valentine.  Quick and simple which seems to fit my schedule this week.

 The embossing folder is Sheet Music by Sizzix.  I matted it on black card stock and wrapped some black twine. I die cuts some hearts using the Spellbinders Classic Hearts and Scalloped Hearts and popped them up for added dimension.  Stamped LOVE YOU-C8558 by impression Obsession in Tuxedo Black Memento and finished it off with a couple of lines of rhinestones.  Quick and easy peasy! 
I was inspired by this card . This is also for the SCS CAS156 which was to use  hearts on your card.

 Off for dinner with my sweet husband.
Have a fabulous evening !!
