My Frilly Valentine

Somethings come over me, I usually don't decorate for Valentines day... but this year I felt the urge to add some sweetness and frills. It must be having the buffet as another surface to play with that motivated me. So here's my sweet Valentines Day vignette.








I even sprang a few bucks for REAL flowers!


I  tied velvet ribbon on the candles and added mini rhinestone buckles for a little bling. I have heart shaped buckles somewhere in my stash... couldn't' find them. I need to get organized in 2012.


    I made a banner by copying a textured background onto card stock cut them to size and then stamped them with French script. I added the heart shaped doilies to the center  and  strung hearts in between. I hung it all on vintage pink seam binding.


Happy Valentines day! BTW these are my first pictures shooting in full manual. I 'm still working on it, but I shot these on a dark and rainy day.
