Simon Says Stamp Large Heart Doily

Hi all, are you having a fab weekend ? the sun is shining here today, but there is a cool breeze blowing ,,, brrrr :-)

I am her today to share a card I made using one of my all time fave dies, this is the new Large Hearts Doily from the Valentine 2014 release, isn't it pretty ! When I saw Jen's lovely sketch for this weeks Less Is More Challenge I thought this would work nicely :-)

I used a strip of acetate across the middle, and I really like the look of this, but it was a fluke. I did use a stencil to create a design and made a bit of a mess of it so I chopped it out and replaced with the acetate,,,, a happy mistake :-) 
I used some silver twine to thread around and make a bow then wondered what else to do ,,,,, hmm ,, I then decided to use the falling hearts stencil and some silver embossing paste to create the design across the bottom and I used the Small Love You die to finish. 

It is my sister and hubby's 25th Wedding Anniversary soon and I was going to pop a 'Happy Anniversary'  sentiment on it but I preferred the die cuts, so I will have to send this to my sister, or her hubby,, so that one of them can give it to the other ,,,, would look weird if I sent it ,,, haha 

I should have taken a photo of the inside too, I covered the inside with more white card and adhered another die cut heart, this covered up all the tape, glue and 3D pop dots. Looks very neat :-)
Thanks for looking and I hope you're having a lovely relaxing Sunday and managing to find some crafty time too ,,, I now have to go and tackle a HUMONGOUS pile of ironing ,, ughugh
