A Valentine for my Valentine

This is the Valentine I made for my husband this year.  I always try to make him a special one, because I love him the most!  This year I put lyrics to a song called "The Book of Love" inside. It's a beautiful song that expresses so much when I hear Peter Gabriel sing it.  My husband and I love music, it's something that brought us together and we share in a special way so I like to use lyrics in my Valentines to him. 

I used Spellbinders Dies (Fleur de lis and Labels 18). Patterned paper is from the French Market Collection by Recollections.  Heart and key were cut using a Spellbinder's die (Antique Heritage).  I cut copper sheeting and inked it using Ranger alcohol ink in Pitch Black, then rubbed across the top with sandpaper.  Inked the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Black Soot. 

Here's a video of the music and lyrics that I placed inside for my Valentine. <3
