Valentine's Day in July

Okay, so I know Valentine's Day isn't for another 7 months, but, as soon as I saw this paper in my random paper pack I knew I had to make a love / Valentine's Day themed card. So while all of you are celebrating Christmas in July, I'm celebrating Valentine's Day in July! (I'll admit that yours has a better ring to it. :)

This is the card that I made, both the pink paper and heart paper are from my random paper pack. I'm glad I got to use two random pieces instead of just one like I normally do. Here's what I used for this card:

- White cardstock (inside of the card)
- Red cardstock 
- Pink Linen paper by The Paper Studio
- Red, Pink & White Hearts by The Paper Studio
- White chipboard letters
- Mini heart wood shapes
- White brads
- White acrylic paint
- Red glitter
- Decorative scissors
- Elmer's glue pen

I have a bunch of spare wood shapes (circles, stars, hearts, etc) and want to start incorporating them onto my cards so that I use them up. For this card, I painted three wood hearts white and added some red glitter to make them more fun. They were perfect embellishments! I would've loved to have added some ribbon to the card, but unfortunately I didn't have any that matched. (Unfortunately, my ribbon collection is very, very minimal). Here are a couple other pictures of the card:
