Valentine - New dies

Today I made a valentine card with two new dies - Grand Madison Window by Memory Box, and Winter Wreath by Die-namics ( I think this wreath die will come in handy as I will be able to adapt it for different seasons by adding snowflakes, fall leaves, etc.

First of all, I used a brick wall embossing folder to create the background on caramel SU paper. Then I sponged and layered colour with Tim Holtz Tea  Dye, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick distress inks

Behind the cream window die, I cut a piece of white cardstock, lightly marked off the four panes of the window and used the C3 Light Grey Copic marker to draw some streaks resembling highlights on window glass. Over this, adhered a piece of clear acrylic for the "glass", then the window die on top,
With a little heart punch I cut out hearts from the same red cardstock as in the card. The wreath I cut from some brown Bazzill in my remnant stash.  I also glued a heart embellie on to a heart with some gold twine, and this dangles freely from the sheer heart ribbon bow at the top of the card.

The verse is from a set by Tattered Angels " Timeless Romance".
