Next up is this fabulous Valentines card by Nancy Wethington. Nancy did an amazing job of combining Graphic 45 papers to create a stunning and unique statement of love. Here is what she had to say about the inspiration for this wonderful work of art! Cupid would be proud!

"Mixing beautiful Graphic 45 papers to create this 5.5" square Valentine's card was a snap. I started with Le Romantique Celebration paper for the background and used both sides to layer between bits of red cardstock.  Then die cut Enamored Embrace and red cardstock with Spellbinders Classic Ovals.  Layering images from Sweetheart of Mine and Sticker Staples, all that was needed was a title from Imaginarium." -Nancy Wethington
