Shaker Valentine

 This Valentine's Day Card is for my husband's Grandfather and his wife.  She is really into cloches and that kind of thing, so I thought this apothecary jar would be a great image to use and I was thinking of masking it and stamped conversation hearts in it or something like that.  Then I thought how fun it would be to make it a shaker card.  In my quest to use up my "bits and pieces" stash, I chose the color scheme to match a heart that I already had die cut.  But I just couldn't make it work.  So, I added it to the inside to go with the sentiment.  I just HAD to use it.  As I was looking through my cardstock to find a piece that matched that heart, I found this piece that had flowers stamped on it already.  I don't know what it was from, but I thought the subtle pattern was a great addition.

Sarah Hurley--All embellishments, just one shape (everything I used is a heart, even the pieces in the shaker and my border die)
Paper Pretties #296--Valentine/Love
Mod Squad--hearts and glitter (my glitter is inside the shaker part)

Stamps: Verve "Happy Valentine's Day" plain jane; PTI "Damask Designs" sentiment inside; "Apothecary Jar" digi (I thought it was from Scribbles Designs, but couldn't find it on their site, so not sure where it came from)
Dies: Verve "Scalloped Trim Trio" heart border die; spellbinders classic ovals, large
