Valentines Day is coming...

So as per with most crafty people I have been making cards... way TO MANY cards! Here is one for now... This was the 2nd card I have made in my life! I LOVE IT!

Now for a little history here.... Valentines day was originally designed by the Hershey company to promote their heart shaped boxes for their chocolates... Does not matter which way you look at this day either as a ploy marketing scam by companies to get you to spend more money on the people you love in between holidays or appreciate it and live it to its fullest no one escapes Valentines Day so u might as well make the best of it and have fun.

Here I did not like the way my ribbon framed it so I grabbed my velum and cut a 1 inch piece and folded it in half and ruffled (I guess is the word that I am looking for) it around the edge of the image. I think it turned out wonderful.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
