For my Valentine :-)

My Valentine and I are not the romantic type, if you know what I mean, so the kind of card we exchange on 14th February usually has a humourous feel.
For this years card I searched for the thickest cardboard I could find; I roughed/distressed the edges and included 2 hearts, red and kraft cardstock, faux stitching, and a pair of digital boxers from Whimsie Doodles; the sentiment is stamped with GStudio alpha stamps; red gem from my own stash.
Not everyone's idea of romanticism, but as said, it works for us ;-)
