Vintage Valentine!

Good morning!
Welcome to my page today! It’s Valentines tomorrow! Its all about love and roses and there are quite a few challenges that pushed me to play along!
I have created a wallet mini using a piece of 12x12 card stock and few extra pieces for the flap.
The mats were done with 2 sheets of 12x12 pattern paper from Bob and Betty, Ornate Annie paper pack.
 Such a romantic feel to the pack with lovely vintage prints and roses too!
I also made a few pockets and some tags with messages that are heat embossed in gold.
The embellishment on the front flap is what I spent a long time on.
The red roses are hand made using tattered florals and a pile of mini vintage postcards from the focal point.
A metal charm seals the love letters.

I have also kept some mini envelopes made with coffee stained papers as journaling tags. 
There is scope to keep over a dozen pictures inside!
The post card is an Itsy Bitsy die and I have stamped it on coffee dyed card stock and have further aged it with DI walnut stain and also some color splats on it.
I think this mini would make a lovely gift for that “special someone”…what say???
I would to link up to the following challenges…
Emerald Creek Dares- Rock the red
Crafty Gals Corner- Shades of Red
Creative moments- Love is in the air
Little red wagon- Use red/ pink and black

Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.
