Paper Players #129 & Dynamic Duos #36

Okay, this card proves that I am indeed a sucker for punishment!  I weaved some of my quilling strips to make the inside of the heart; I didn't have a heart-shaped die, but I had a heart-shaped cookie cutter (of course), so I traced it and cut it out with my Cuttle Bee; it looked a little plain, so I made some sparkly red lips (just to note-not a reflection of my own personal style!) using free clipart, and I made the sparkly paper by brushing glue on some black and red cardstock and sprinkling them with glitterPhew!  I was aiming for a masculine-looking card so that I could give it to my hubby on Valentine's Day.  I hope he appreciates my 'labour of love' :) 

I played along with The Paper Players and Dynamic Duos
