Valetines cards

Good morning from - wait for it yes you've guessed a snowy Michigan!!! We have had extremely cold weather over the last few days and it is set to stay for at least the next week. Snow flurries keep falling and it is way too cold to walk the poor puppies!
We had planned a gathering at our home for Valentine's Day - It was exactly a year since we bought the house and we thought what better way to celebrate than with people who have become good friends over the last 12 months! Well Mother Nature put paid to that! We had blizzards with snow blowing so hard visibility was down to zero! The only person brave enough to risk it was the food delivery guy which meant we had enough subs, pizza and salad to feed us for this coming week!
Anyway we made the best of it - I got some coloring done and we managed to reduce the amount of programs on the DVR! I can now share the card I made for Kev:
I used Crafter's Companion Centura pearl card for the base and face of this card. I die cut a heart shape from the top layer. Then used some red Core'dinations card and a memory box die for the insert. I stamped the sentiment using So Suzy's Happy Valentine's Day sentiment stamp and added 3 Double Click Skittles just to balance the design.
A very CAS card but that is my favorite kind to make!
I have entered this card into the following challenge
Kraftyhands - Hearts and Flowers
