Candy for My Valentine

Hello!  It is interesting how some ideas for card challenges come so quickly and others take a lot of thought.   When I saw the Retro Rubber Challenge sketch shown below, I immediately thought of a stamp from Flourishes that dates back to 2012.  It was a stamp of a Heart Shape box of candy ....I guess it was the double heart in the sketch that brought it to mind.  I stamped the sentiment and box on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics and Glaze pens. I added some Glossy Accents to the Candy to give some dimension.  I used Clear Snap Red and Gold Foils for the strips on the right side which I adhered with Scor-tape.  Added some gold sequins for even more sparkle.  The card base is Gold Metallic CS.
