My valentine ... with a double bow!

Ok so not strictly my valentine, but I did make up this beautiful sample to be displayed in Papercuts Whitley Bay!! 
I was under orders to keep it simple and make it beautiful, and I think I managed both ... ok so maybe it could have been more simple but its definately beautiful! 

I used Xcut homespun hearts which I nested on top of black cardstock which I double embossed, first with a heart embossing folder, and then in the hearts I used clear embossing powder to make them shiny. I added some ribbon and did a double bow from a tutorial over at Jak Heaths blog. The sentiment I made by trimming some off the paper and mounting it. 
I love this card, its so pretty!!
