Valentines - Part 1

I've been working away at this year's Valentines.  I was surprised by the amount of valentine-themed paper I had in my collection.  Seriously, I must have a 2" high stack.  Where the heck did all that come from?  In an attempt to put a dent in it, I've focused on using two packs from K&Co. pictured below.  One is pretty traditional, the other, the one on top, has a "love is a 3-ring Circus" theme to it, which I thought was both original and completely accurate. 
I've been adding paper to these packs from various sources as the mood hits me.  The one below may be hard to find.  I've had it for a while.  It's from Creative Imaginations.  I'm really only using the edge of the page.  It goes well with the circus theme.  The middle will probably wind up as the envelope. 

Here's a shot of the rest of the stuff I used to make the card at the bottom.  Those Graphic 45 stamps from Hampton art are the perfect foil for the circus valentine.  K&Co. offered some adhesive borders to match all the papers in the pack.  I couldn't resist. 

The finished piece.  I used Glossy Accents to add detail to the hearts in the banner.  Enjoy!
