Holiday Wednesday with a twist

I know, I know it isn't Valentine's Day but I have never showed this card before and I just haven't had time to do any other card what with taxes (a collective boo is quite alright). So without further ado here is my card.

The circle is a accucut circular die cut from Terryfic Times then woven with a gingham ribbon. The flower centers are from a broken pin my dd gave me just to use with my stamping - how well she knows me. lol
The buttons had their shanks cut off and then are colored with night sky versamagic chalk ink. The words are done on the computer. Tilda is colored with copics. The bow has angel wings shimmerz  paint. It is an easel card.

I know blue is an unusual Valentine's Day card but with the saying I thought it fit. Hope you enjoy.
