The Best Love Story Is The One You Write Together!

Good evening everyone, hope you are all having a wonderful week. My goodness my craft room has been getting a workout this week. So many fantastic ideas floating around in my head and not enough time in the day to try them all out. But here is one for you...

For this Shadow Box Card I decided to use the lovely sketch from Try Stampin' on a Tuesday, and the beautiful Valentine colour theme from ColourQ and I thought why not add in one more new technique and I found that such technique the Stamp Punch Window (but in this case I used a Framelit) over at Technique Time Tuesday. 

I am hosting a Valentine's Day Class this weekend and we are going to be making a Shadow Box Frame and I wanted an extra special card to go along with the project and it just occurred to me that THIS card would be perfect!
