OLW 39: An Image, A Border, Some Bling

It's time for another Simplicity challenge! 

This week's challenge is all about using a single image, a border and a little bling on a single layer card.  Tougher than it sounds.   Since I need a few more Valentine cards, I decided to follow this theme.  The end result is a kraft card base with my image and border stamped in Memento Lady Bug Red.  The heart border is from Impress Rubber Stamps and the birdcage is by Craft Smart....$1.00 stamps from Mike's. 

I added a little bit of red Spica glitter pen to some of the red hearts and my clear Sakura glitter pen to the open heart of the birdcage and bird wings.

I really think this needs a sentiment.  I think I am going to go back and add one.  Something like Happy Valentine's Day.  Perhaps above the heart border on the right side.  What do you think??

Thanks for peeking!

Cute! I know what you mean about a sentiment... and I caved and put a little extra border on mine (all in the name of balance). :) Good job on the challenge.
