Valentine and Valentino

Morning and I have two cards for the new challenge at Create And Inspire,we are sponsored by Ikes Art and I used Valentino and Valentine coloured with promarkers,I embossed the back card,then B.paper from Docrafts,cardstock from Papermill Direct,I stamped script onto two little chipboard hearts,heart die from Memory Box and twine from stash.
I coloured Valentine with promarkers,the sentiments are from the same stamp set but no original package so no name sorry,the background was made with shaving foam and acrylic paint-I thought the image was best left CAS.
