It's Card Creating Tuesday!

Hello Crafty Friends!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to you all! I hope it is a lovely day for all of you!
I am excited to share a card on this special holiday. I was so very lucky to get to meet with Erica and my Design Team "sister" Sue Ann in Cincinnati in January. When we met, Erica shared some papers that she asked us to use to make a Valentine's Day card. Here is my take on it!
The adorable papers are from Doodlebug Designs and the Sweet Treat collection and I just LOVE them! It was hard to select what papers to use.
With the adorable cakes and cupcakes on the paper, an "obvious" accent would have been a cute and adorable cupcake. I decided to take a closer look at the images and saw there were strawberries on there too.... well, I love strawberries and I REALLY LOVE Chocolate Covered Strawberries! What a great Valentine's idea! So I went with the Strawberry on Celebrate With Flourish. I just love that cut! It is not showing up in my photo, but I used Glossy Accents on the "white chocolate" portion of the strawberry and it looks so much like a White Chocolate Covered Strawberry! YUM!
I used Elegant Edges to cut the half circle and for the word "love" - I used Cake Basics! With a bit of Doodlebug Bakers Twine tied up on the side and some foam dots to give more dimension to the card - it seems like the perfect Valentine!
What do you think?
How are you celebrating Valentine's Day? I hope it is a very fun day for you!
Thank you so very much for stopping by and I would love to hear your comments!
