Valentine's card for my darling hubby

Happy Valentine's Day!! I hope you had a lovely, romantic day.

I made this card for my gorgeous husband, he always buys me the most beautiful cards but more importantly writes such special words inside that make me love him even more. We celebrated being together 20 years last month.

The gorgeous vine is from Flourish with a Bling, it's called the Jack vine and comes in green, forest green, olive green (this one) and black. Check out the website here for more unique designs, we have some amazing bling packs at fantastic prices.
