Valentine Card

Hi Everyone,

Well, my dear Husband is still in the Hospital. Doctor doesn't think he will be coming home before Thursday or Friday. He is still having a really tough time trying to eat and being feed intervenously. Please add him to your prayers.
I have made another Valentine's Day card using the DeNami sketch #06. I also used a Denami stamp. I stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Ruby Red Powder from Stampendous. The stamped image is layered onto Real Red CS (Stampin' Up). All the DP is from GCD Studios.

For accents, I added a strip of red tulle and three red buttons. Here are some detail photos.
