Shopping Our Stash Challenge #290 - Heartless

®Hello, Crafty Peeples!
SOS Challenge "Heartless"
Create a Romantic Project without using Hearts.
The word Heart (s) can be used but no heart shaped die cuts or rubber stamps, etc.
I am hosting this week at Shopping Our Stash and so I must take responsibility for the challenge theme!  Oddly enough, I struggled with my own theme.  I know I had something else in mind for my project but cannot, for the life of me, remember what!  Anymahoo, here is my Romantic Valentine Card!  I made it for my son-in-law to give to my daughter and then forgot to give it to him when they were here yesterday!  He can give it to her on another special day!

I really this beautiful LemonCraftraft™ "Anna Zaprzelska†" House of Roses Time Flies paper.  They were in one of the "Your Passion, Your Art" Main Kits from The Flying Unicorn™ (sadly, they are out of business.  I have held on to these papers for almost two years but, staying true to my resolve to actually craft with my supplies, I took a deep breath and CUT!
To add more interest, I used a scrap strip of card stock as my closer.
I secured back end of the closer with a decorative stamped image. I did not want to cut beautiful.  The pretty paper on the corner is the end of the paper I used to create my interior pocket.  
I created my interior tag pocket by fussy cutting the rose pattern at the bottom of one of my 12"x12" sheets.  I created a tag using the green base cs and the gingham pattern.  The gingham design is the reverse side of the rose printed paper.   The smaller greetings journal card is from the Graphic 45® Nature's Sketchbook Journaling & Ephemera Collection.
I used my 2"circle punch to cut out a small rose pattern.  The edges were distressed (Walnut Stain) and I attached it to the tag using clear 3D Zots™

This embossed Floral pattern in on the inside of the top flap.  Although is does not show in the photos, it works well and adds both depth and texture to the interior.
