Valentine card

OK, OK, everyone here has been saying "Valentine's Day! Why on earth are you thinking of Valentine's Day already??"
I'm trying to get a jump-start on the next holiday...and designed this for my dear husband. SVL (standard Val layout)...I told Val (11Valerie11 on SCS) about this card today on the phone - I always design his card first before anything else is done for the holiday. Hope he likes it!
The two buttons located near the card bottom are vintage ones gifted to me from my dear friend Piris (or Iris on SCS). I snipped off the shank with wire cutters, then tinted them a tad darker using Adirondak Alcohol Inks in Espresso and Ginger (Ranger).
The fabulous printed paper used for the lower portion of the card base is from Die Cuts with a View (DCWV), gifted this holiday from another dear friend, Ang (AngFab on SCS). Thanks Ang, Val and Piris!!!
other elements used: 7gypsies arrow & small aged tag; black pinwheel brad; Cuttlebug heart die; SU burgundy & ivory cardstock, 7gypsies French & English text paper, DCWV Old World Stack textured paper, SU 'love' sentiment & harlequin stamps; red wax linen.
