Valentine for My Man

This time I kept in mind the kind of cards my hubby likes to see me make: CAS. Whenever I show him one that I actually kept CAS (...VERY difficult for me!) he always says that I "should make more like that"!
So here's what I came up with: (yes, I  know its a bit corny!)

The inside simply says, "I love you still. Always will."

Right now there are LOTS of challenges that are asking for "Love" themed cards/projects, so I've combined several. The Pinspirational Challenge has an adorable picture of a little girl kissing a little boy on the cheek. That picture inspired me to use the different shades of red, white and grey...AND the boy has on a red tie!
(The sentiment on the front is computer-generated.)

Ingredients:
Red, white and black cardstock - from my stash
Stamps - Sandylion "Are We There Yet?",
SweetStamps "Gentleman Joe" (colored w/colored pencils)
Embellishments - Colorbok "Metal Accents- Hearts"
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug "Tiny Hearts"
Ink - Studio G "Red"

Challenges: 
Crafts4eternity.blogspot.co.uk - #162 "With Love"
Craftingforallseasons.blogspot.com - #70 "Show Us Some Romance"
Pinspirationalchallenges.blogspot.ca - #94 Photo Inspiration
