Non-Traditional Valentine Card

I'm not sure which "group" established the challenge to make a Valentine's card using non-traiditonal colors (no pink or red). This is my contribution to that challenge. The stamp sets I used were Fifth Avenue Floral from the main catalog and Well Scripted from the mini. The designer paper is Bella Bleu and the other papers used were Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. I used the new scallop trim border punch from the SAB catalog to make the piece of paper behind the Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon. I didn't have a brad that was quite the right shade of green so I dipped an old olive brad in Versamark and used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to alter the brad. I outlined over the stamped image with my glue pen and applied Dazzling Diamonds. Hope you like the card and I welcome your comments. Have a great day!
