Easy Valentine's Card

Here's a very easy Valentine's card for you today. I didn't have a lot of time to stamp, so it HAD to be easy! This was inspired by a hand towel I saw somewhere.
The swirl is stamped with burgundy ink on red paper, and then I went over it with my Sakura clear glaze gel pen. I stamped "love" in versamark on red paper and embossed in white. I layered it on a strip of burgundy and adhered it to the base. I tied a white knot around the whole card, and added dew drops last. I think darker dew drops and white taffeta would be better, but hey, you gotta work with what you have!

Supplies:
stamps - Baroque Motifs, Wonderful Words
paper - baroque burgundy, real red
ink - baroque burgundy, versamark
acc - white grosgrain, white EP, dew drops, sakura clear glaze gel pen
