Heart Wreath Anniversary Valentine

 Happy Day, everyone. It's beginning to warm up a bit here, but the week has taken a toll with my Arthur pain. And to make it worse, our daughter and son-in-love in Austin got the full force of the ice storm that hit Texas and lost power which is still not restored. And it began warming a bit there yesterday, but that is how overwhelmed the utility linemen are right now, there are so many knarly restores with all the ice on the trees and limbs breaking and falling on lines. The kids founds friends with working internet and are over there working from their home today. It does give them something to do, as sitting around without electricity these days gets really old after all. But I'm hoping things normalize for them as soon as possible.
I'm sharing a card I made for them. This photo shows the colors realistically, but in some of my subsequent photos the pink looks more red than it really is. I think that is caused sometimes by my post-processing action I run in PSE. I usually go in manually and adjust the affected photos but I cop to being lazy this time.  🙋
Supply List:
Blick tag board for 6x6 card base
Lawn Fawn designer papers
Uniko Studio Fabulous Florals digital image
Printed on watercolor paper
Colored with Castle Arts colored pencils and watercolors
Embellishment with Sakura Star Dust glitter gel pens
Flourishes Love You stamped with Versamark & heat-embossed with white powder
Ribbon and enamel dots from my stash
Spellbinders small Classic Heart die
I used this sketch for my layout design.
A close-up to show the white heat-embossed sentiment. (This shot and the rest were over-processed and look too red.)
Inside the card, I created the sentiments and printed them out on pink pastel paper.
And the back with more of the Lawn Fawn paper and a stamped and punched siggie.
One last look. Thanks for the visit and I hope your weekend looks good!

I've used Uniko Fab Florals digi.
Just playing for fun if an anniversary valentine card doesn't qualify

First of all what the heck does this mean - "by my post-processing action I run in PSE."

Sorry to read about the problems. It is a little warmer here too. Just had a water leak fixed and the boiler was seen too. Been waiting since before Xmas!!
Love the card.

This winter has been tough everywhere. Sorry to hear about your daughter and son-in-law not having power. Hopefully their power will be back very soon. And I'm glad you hear you liked the King Arthur flour. Your bread sounds delicious. Your Valentine's Card is beautiful, and I bet your daughter will love it. How could she not? I hope you're having a nice weekend. You should link this up to TIOT if you want also. hugs-Erika
