Love, Love Me Do….Challenge #184 at SOS

Looking for my Clear it Out blog post? Scroll down or click HERE.

Shopping our Stash want you to make a Love/Valentine card, Valentines day is only a couple of weeks away and you need to make your Honey a card so I hope you will join us for the fun,  My card fold is almost a total case of a Christmas card I received from snarky sister Lee. I  left the length but made the card so it fit in an A2 envelope. Have a look………
My image is a House Mouse Designs stamp, The flourish has been in my scrap box for at least a year, the pearls and lace are years old too and the buckle is probably 5 years old even the cardstock is  about 13 years old, it’s a 12 X 12 paper pad I bought at our old Wal-mart before they built a super store and moved. Now that is shopping my stash to the limit.
Detailed picture of the buckle embellishment.
Left over part of the flourish
The inside for the sentiment.

The measurements for the fold are 4 1/4 X 11 7/8 Score at 4 1/2 and 9 7/8. the buckle I used is fairly heavy to hold the flap down., the 2 inch flap is on the right and the left flap goes on top of it.
I would like to put this in the following Challenges:
Hiding in My Craft Room  #186 Any Holiday
Glitter N Sparkle #121 Pearls & Swirls 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Have a Heart (the buckle has hearts on it)
Eureka Stamps challenge # 125 Hearts (the buckle has hearts on it.)
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can find some time to make a Love Love me do project.

Very cute! I have some of those buckles! They're in my stash and I've never used them - couldn't quite figure out what to do with them - so thank you for the inspiration! Now I'll have to try to find them LOL! Gorgeous paper and flourish too!
