Simple Valentine Card

I guess I am not much of a romantic because even though I love my husband of 17 years very much, I am not really big on Valentine's Day.  I guess it is the commercialism of the holiday that ruins it for me.  I have however managed to make one Valentine so far though.  
It is a simple, almost a clean and simple, card but there is one thing I especially like about it... the hearts made out of GLIMMER PAPER!  If you haven't tried it, you need too!  Just a little glimmer paper can go a long way towards transforming a project.

I forgot to attach my ribbon to the dsp before I attached it to the card.  To hide the ribbon ends on the inside of the card, I placed a thin strip of dsp over them.
I also placed a white piece of cardstock on the inside to write on since the card is made out of dark gray cardstock.
The designer paper is called Love Impressions and can be found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Tomorrow I will show you a project that I made using it that has nothing to do with Valentine's Day.
Thank you for stopping by and please leave me a comment,
