Valentine's Day Cards

I'm doing one lump post on these Valentine's Day cards or I will never get around to it.  A couple are from Pinterest, one is from the catalog.  
This card I used the sticker sheet on a back layer (I used white and should have gone with black but originally it was going to be a white card).  I cut the heart in foil red and in black.  I mounted the outline of the black heart on the piece of white cardstock and then inserted the red foil heart.  I then used all of the little pieces of black that were cut out to fill in the red heart.  It looks nifty in person to have the image filled in.

I am in LOVE with this quilt!!  This is the 2015 Quiltville Mystery Quilt.  My second time doing a mystery quilt.  This is just the top.  It still needs to be quilted and have the binding sewn on.  This took me about 6 weeks to make, albeit 2 of the weeks I didn't touch it because I had other things needing my attention or I was procrastinating.  I knew Part 4 was going to take a long time.  I skipped it and went on to Part 5.  Then I had to suck it up.  It didn't disappoint with the amount of time it took to do it.

I haven't uploaded pictures to my computer of the different steps but they are on Instagram.

This took me about 100 hours and it has somewhere around 2,328 pieces.  So worth the effort.
