Full Gauge Valentine

Happy Friday & Happy New Year!
I hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it seems a good time to start making those Love cards. And to continue with the DRS Thursday Challenge - Stencils, I used a couple of stencils on my background. I made this background a while back and had just what you see left over. I sprayed and sponged through the stencils then used a little square border die down the left side. The gauge was die cut with a circle then the bottom section cut off and used on the right of the greeting w/ a little flower on top. I tell you, not much goes to waste on my craft desk.
The white background was embossed with some tiny little hearts and the heart on the gauge was paper pieced from a tiny section of the background. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
