The Last Valentine

This was just too much fun. The card for my 8yrold niece who loves my cards and loves Tilda. She's a little dark-haired beauty, too and now she expects to find Tilda on all the cards I make for her. Well, by golly, that's okay by me 'cuz you all know I love Tilda, too. This time I got to use some of my new mini's. They're so cute and petite!  But that's not all. She also expects some kind of surprise on the inside of the card and I try my best not to disappoint. Thanks to the YouTube video suggested by a valued Yahoo group member, I think I've been able to satisfy my Tilda (err ... I mean Zoe). I used clear acetate strips, an EK Success flower punch, and some Sizzix grass to create a flower garden for Valentine's Day. Used digi papers from Bearly Mine and printed the sentiment on the 'puter. I think I've fulfilled all the requirements for a Zoe card from Aunt Sue, so I hope she likes it.

I had to use a little gold spiral clip to hold the card closed - it kept popping open and spoiling the surprise :)
