Friendly Valentine Card #2

I'm on to my next friend Valentine card.  I thought I would try the same layout design, but eliminate the embedded embossing and use one of the cute little journal tags that I found in my Valentine stash.  The sentiment is perfect for one of my friends, "I Like Hangin' Out With You."  

Next, I began to search for the perfect patterned paper companions that would work well together and with my tag.  When I found the Little Yellow Bicycle foil hearts hanging from a curly while clothes line, I thought it was the perfect base.  I soon found the other two patterned papers that would work for the banner and its half-circle topper.  I decided on the rose-pink cardstock I had used in my first friend card and decided to pair it up with red for the tag and the banner underlays.  I used larger brads on this card and I think I like them as well, but the jury may still be out on that one.  Take a peek at my finish card and see what you think.

Following my traditional cardmaking routine, I now turned my attention to designing an inside that compliments the outside, finishing it off with my own idea for a verse, using the Be My Valentine stamp from the Stampin' Up Delightful Dozens stamp set, which has unfortunately, been retired.  I made my verse using the computer and added the stamp at the bottom in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I also decided to color in my stamp heart with the Stampin' Up Rose Red marker.
