Blue heart card without a greeting

I have been working on cards with hearts for Valentine's Day but have created a few of them in non traditional colours and without greetings to provide them more versatility.  This one features a blue heart die cut from a collaged ATC from years ago.  I layered it onto a light blue heart die cut and went looking for a way to display it.  I decided to use an embossed frame which I manually embossed from an embossing folder.  I manually embossed it because the frame is surrounded by stars which I did not want around the frame.  I trimmed the frame by hand, added a length of blue ribbon to which I tied a short piece using a single knot to simulate a bow and then mounted the double heart focal element using 3D foam tape.  I found some coordinating cardstock and embossed a background using a heart embossing folder.  I trimmed it to 4" x 5.25" and adhered it to a white card front and finished off the card by adhering my framed focal element.   Certainly suitable for a variety of occasions and does Valentine's for anyone who loves blue!!                  Therese
