Happy Valentine's Day!

I managed to make a cute Valentine's card for my husband Nathan.  It's not super original.  I've seen this general idea lots of places.  But, I did like how it turned out.  To make the hearts on the line seem recessed, the entire white panel that has the heart shaped window cut out of it is raised up on foam mounting tape.  The inside says "Happy Valentine's Day".
Also, this is the first card I've photographed with my new pop up light tent and lights!!  I'm very excited about them.  I had debated about getting something along these lines for quite a while.  Finally, I was fed up enough trying to get good light for pictures that I broke down, bit the bullet and ordered some.  Yay Amazon Prime two day shipping!  I needed to play around with the light placement to get right.  I also got a few tips from a professional I know (Thanks Susan!).  I may also purchase a camera app that has a few more options to it than the native one on my iPhone 5s.  But, all in all, I think it was money well spent.  Here's how I had it set up:

Stamps: A Muse essential sentiments and hand scripted sets
Ink: A Muse cherry
Paper: A Muse sugar and winter sky card stock
Misc.: Fiskers Fuse, A Muse heart trio and big heart dies, A Muse tiny clothes pins, Martha Stewart Crafts red and white baker's twine, foam mounting tape, A Muse woodgrain/harlequin embossing plate
