Valentine Treasure!!

I made a valentine treasure for my dear darling daughter, Kim~Crafts by Kim and her husband Brent :)--many of you know her and her amazing work!!! Of course the valentine gifts I got them won't fit inside but that's ok. Yes you probably can guess I got her crafting goodies~~they seem to brighten our day more so than chocolate!! LOL AND.... the chocolates are for Brent~~even thought he is a TRUE Sweetheart :D  Here it is~~~~~~~~~~~First side of gift for Kim :)
Other side for Brent :)

I saw this on Jay Jay's blog and fell in love with it. Go Here to find template.  Papers I used are SU--Naturals and brown cardstock.  Then I took SU Yummy stamp and using edge of swirl~~inked with Aged Mahogany distress ink and stamped around edges of heart. Then daubbered with SU red rose ink to give softer look :)  Used Spellbinders scallop heart and Inkssentials opaque pen to detail brown heart.
Images are shy little Magnolia Tilda ~~KIM~~waiting for confident Edwin ~~BRENT~~who is surprising her with a rose (as my story goes) :))))  Colored with copics. The following are some close ups :o)

Embellished with K&Co Embossed stickers, Heart charm, ribbon, heart button, paper studio photo corner and eyelets!!
