Some Valentines cards and a winner

Hi everyone!  I have a couple Valentines cards to share today.  One is super duper simple and easy and the other is a bit more detailed.
First up is the easy card.  I put this together quite literally from items left over on my desk.  
The pattern paper looks like this
I just flipped it on it's side, trimmed and matted it to black cardstock, used a heart die cut and added some flowers, pearls and a sentiment.  Boom.  Done.  Cute and a fun way to use those sunburst pattern papers we find in the paper pads.
Next up is a card a bit more detailed.  I love the look of die cutting into the card front.  You can stamp (or write) a message on the inside that will show through.  This card uses basic and scalloped circles, hearts and a bitty blossom rose.

And finally I want to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my CHA giveaway post. helped me chose #15 as the winner.
