Valentine for my mom

 This is for my mother, her favorite color in the world is purple, so of course her valentine had to be purple too. I just happen to have the best mother on the planet, so I really hope she likes this, fortunately, she's a mom... so even if I had used a box of crayons she would love it :)
I just picked up The Chateau Lavender stack from DCWV and I thought it would work perfectly for the card that I wanted to make.  I kept it pretty simple, the paper was so beautiful I just added the stamp on the front, the little metal heart used to be a locket, but I broke it in half and took the loop off, I love how it turned out.
For the inside I used pale yellow cardstock and lined the bottom and the left with sheer yellow ribbon, then I cut out part of the same paper I had used on the front, I inked it and put it on top of the ribbon, then I added the bow, using the same ribbon I had put under the flowers.

I am entering this card into these challenges
