Non Typical Valentine!

Hi Everyone! I want to show you a card I made that is a non typical Valentine -- non typical in color that is. It was fun making a Valentine that was not red and pink! I used paper from the Basic Grey pad Motifica. I added some interest by stamping a flower on the left edge and bottom right of the paper. The sentiment is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set -- My Rose Garden. There are a lot of  favorite items on my card. They include the flower, bow and swirls. It seems that I use these a lot! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a good weekend. It is warm and beautiful here.
