CAS-ual Friday's Valentine for a Friend

I made several Valentines last night, so here's my next one. I'm still trying to learn to make Clean and simple cards, so I used this sketch from CAS-ual Fridays Sketch #37.

I used a stamp that was a special from Close To My Heart after the Japanese earthquake. I embossed .25" from all four edges. I slightly ran the edge of the papers along a juicy black inkpad, just to give the papers some definition. I pleated the sentiment strip and added one embellishment, a butterfly that I had inked with Cotton Candy ink. It was definitely a quick, easy card to make. Because of the butterflies in the stamp and embellishment, I'm also adding this to Flutter By Wednesday's challenge#188  this week.

6.5" x 5" card:
Paper - K & Co, Darice CS (pink), CTMH CS (white daisy)
Stamp - CTMH "Hope," "True Friends"
Ink - CTMH Black, Cranberry, Cotton Candy
Other - CTMH Just Blooms Paper Shapes (butterfly)
