Valentine's Hearts in a Vase Quilled Card

...And just like that we're almost a month into 2014!

January 31st marks Chinese New Year (lunar calendar). It's the year of the horse. Since the zodiac is on a 12 year cycle, the next year of the horse will not make it's next appearance until 2026!

I've been pretty bad with keeping up with things lately due to getting settled in and working on my wedding invites, but here, alas, is my contribution to current events in crafting...a Valentine's Day card!
There are 3 hearts that are acting like blossoms in a vase. I've taken a liking to swirling my foliage lately if you can't tell. :) The background is embossed with blocks of hearts from Cuttlebug and the sentiment was printed using my photo printer. It's a little hard to see it, but I also dabbed some glitter on the hearts for added effect.

Sending you all my best,
