Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #45

I am loving the time I am getting in my craft area, happy creating is always wonderful.
I think I am cutting it pretty close with the Inspiration Challenge at Inspired by Stamping.
I created this simple Valentine's for my son, I did not want it to be 'sappy'.  The  Designer paper is a wonderful mix of deep red, cream, tan.  The heart are die cut from paper with green, tan and cream. I edges are lightly inked with black.
The hearts are popped up with foam tape, the sentiment was heat embossed in black. I have little spots of glue holding the twine in it's winding pattern.
My colours are not as bright and pretty as the Inspiration picture but I was aiming for a masculine focused card.
Supplies: Natural white and cranberry card stock, Designer Paper-Bo Bunny, Stampendous-Simple Valentines, twine, Sizzix Embosslets.
