MIM #51 and Shabby Tea Room #99

Hey there!  I keep thinking I am done making Valentine cards then another ideas springs up.  Have you guys seen the Spellbinders postage dies?  I have wanted them but since I have not bought them.  I always try to figure out how I can get the same look without buying the item(can't buy all of them).  I took a 4.25 by 4.25 card and marked around the edges then used my half inch circle punch and punched half of the circle out.  I made a mark at two and a eighth inches then and inch on either side of that.  The card was for the Papertrey Ink challenge of a dimensional banner and the Shabby Tea Room "Love is in the Air" challenge(pic below).
Cardstock: White and Fine Linen(PTI), Background Paper(PTI)
Ink: Papertrey Ink(Tea Dye and Poppy)
Stamps: Heart Prints (PTI)
Extras: Ribbon(SU), Heart Pins(JoAnns), Punch(SU)

I love the picture above.  Just such a cute little table setting.  I have one more idea for the banner challenge but we will see if it gets done.
