Valentine's Day 2014 Layout

It's the month when we celebrate love, so I created this lovely sketch for Splitcoast Stampers that showcases two pictures embellished with hearts and a hand-holding couple. I had some Valentine's Day photos in mind to use, and I pulled out my Cricut Artbooking cartridge to die-cut the couple. My pictures were taken at a dinner theater, so the gold dotted vellum seemed like a good accent for the bright lights, but it turned out I had no other gold paper. I improvised using gold embossing power around the photos and on the circles, and I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out. Hope you like it, too!
