"L-O-V-E Recipe!"

Hi Blog Friends!

Can you believe it? I've come up with ANOTHER VALENTINE! 
This card will be entered into TWO CHALLENGES!
First, ODB is having a
"L-O-V-E Recipe" Challenge!

For more information on this challenge check here:
 Here's my "recipe!"
 L- Lacey Die
                                O- Old looking card (Old is my "style!")
V- Valentine
        E- Envelope Card
I used this recipe to come up with my card! I don't have any of the Valentine goodies from ODB, BUT, I do have ONE DIE that does the trick!
So, tell me what you think?
This is the front of the "Envelope!"
I used Flourishes- Angelic Love & From The Heart, to make this card.
The second Challenge is:
 Flourishes- "Red & Love" Challenge.

To find out more about this challenge check here:
(I HOPE this is linking! I seem to be having trouble with it! You can scroll down to another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Post if necessary to find a direct link!)

This is the back of the "Envelope!"
As you open the "Envelope..."
Here you can see the ODB- Custom Design Die.
Here you see that the ODB- Custom Design Dies help to make this Valentine!
And the image is from Flourishes- Angelic Love;
  the sentiment is from Flourishes- From the Heart.
Here a close-up of the inside! Isn't that little cupid CUTE?
And the sentiment is meant for someone IRRESISTIBLE!

Additional Supplies not mentioned above:
DCWV- polka dot paper
SU- Real Red
Tim Holtz- Picket Fence-Distress Marker
Spellbinders- Classic Scallop Heart
X-Acto Knife
Tim Holtz- Tea Dye
Dick Blick- Colored Pencils
WRMK- Envelope Punch Board
Faber-Castell- Eraser Pencil (See below for a TIP!)
Zig Glue Pen

Well, I think this is the last of my "Valentine Blitz," for real this time! LOL
I just COULDN'T RESIST these two challenges!

In a Vintage Valentine Mood!

 Another challenge to post this card to, here:

Just a little note:
I used the envelope Punch Board to make my envelope, making it to the dimensions for a 5"x 5" card.
Polka Dot paper- 4 15/16" x 4 15/16"
Red paper- 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
White paper- (for the image)- 4 1/8" x 4 1/8"

Just a little TIP!
I discovered that if you use the Distress- Picket Fence Marker, it tends to splotch.
 One way to fix that, is an Eraser!
Here's what I used: 
It only erases the splotchy parts!
