A break!

So, I decided to clean the house on Thursday and I ended up in the middle of a 3 day project of painting the hallway/foyer.  This was no small feat as this is the largest surface area to paint in our house.  My husband told me not to clean again!  LOL!  I finally get to do something a little more for me and made this valentine card without pink/red as I am not a fan of pink.  The DP is from K & Company.  The ivy border is from an EK Success border punch.  The lace paper border is a MS double punch.  The roses were made with a SVG file from Penny Duncan Creations and were colored with Glimmer Mist meadow green and arctic blue.  The frame is also an SVG file from Penny Duncan.  All layers were distressed with Jim Holtz Distress ink, brushed corduroy.
