Love is the key

This anniversary card is for my  brother and sister-in-law.  It's a bit bigger than I usually make: 6 1/2 x 5 (I usually use A2 size cards) but I wanted to use this large scale damask image and it would have been completely lost on a smaller card (or overwhelmed it).  I layered a piece of aluminum tape over some scrap cardstock before running it through my die cutter to make the keys and the lock.  It's such an easy way to create "metal" embellishments.

Challenges:
Viva La Verve August week 3--sketch

Word Art Wednesday #94--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Eureka Stamps #54--be sentimental
Cuttlebug Mania--anything goes with die cuts
My Heart Pieces--use a piece of metal

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI "Lock &  Key" sentiment; Kaiser Craft "Dear Santa Collection" damask and flourishes around sentiment
Dies/Punches:  Spellbinders A2 Locking Loops; PTI "Lock & Key"; Verve "Classy Labels Die"; SU! scalloped circle punch (flower)
