Cheap Earring!

Here is a rather quick valentine card I made. Paper is from I Heart You download collection from Funky Hand and I've used my Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder for a bit of texture. The lettering is Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet dies and I've added a very blingy and cheap earring that I bought with Jacob (that shopping trip a few years ago - he does like looking for bargains with me!)

The ribbon is I think upholstery trimmings and I got it from the Scrap store ages ago.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
