A heart for friends

This is a busy week and I will not be making many Valentines.  This is special - our friends celebrated their 50th anniversary last summer.  However, Mary Lou's health is declining - there may not be another anniversary.  So I thought a special valentine is called for.  The image is from my WishRAK stash - but I like the old fashioned look.  I distressed the bg layer to go with that.  I colored with Prismas and shiny gel pens.  I added Stickles to the red heart, and some glitter to the doily like inner heart.  I fussy cut (well, it was not very fussy!!) the image.  The pink layer is embossed with hearts (Cuttlebug) and I used a Spellbinder scallop border die with embossing (can't see it?  ... next to the twine).  The letters are cut from a LifeStyle Crafts set (hello, good by), and the greeting is JustRite.
