mojo monday ~ grown up valentine

Well, it's Monday and off to the races! This week's mojo card will be the card I give to my hubby for valentine's day. I think this sketch is fantastic and "grown up" so it is the perfect way to be inspired for valentines.

My little one is not feeling well, and home from school today, so I'm not sure how much I'm going to get done this week. I'm glad I was able to sneak off to make a quick card while she's sleeping.

I used a rubon, on the brown layer at the bottom to follow the sketch. For the heart, I layered 3 of them, and used the rock and roll technique for the center heart. I think my honey will like this card, it's on the masculine side, right?? Well i guess that big ribbon isn't too manly, but it's from me, and I have a thing for ribbon.

Off to make some chicken soup and check on my little one. Poor little thing..
