Another Valentine

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far.  The midnight oil has been burning in my studio making Valentine cards.  Below is the one for today.  (You didn't think I'd show them all in one day did ya? lol)
The key and sentiment are from the Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I cut out the key after embossing with gold embossing powder. Then I had a light bulb moment (love when that happens – and when it works!) to use hole punches for the tiny areas on the key.  The 1/8” hole punch was used for the top and the 1/16” worked for the bottom area. The heart is popped up on dimensionals.  It just seemed to get lost with the spritzed background so I carefully ran the brush tip of the Cherry Cobbler marker around the edge of the heart. That really made it pop.  It’s amazing what a little ink can do!
 Here's a close up of the key embellishment:
You can't tell that the bottom portion of the key has been punched out. Sorry that it blends in with the white.
