Taylored Expressions "Punny Love" Valentine

Hi everyone!

I've had some extra time in my craft room the last few days, so I took advantage and made a few Valentine cards.
 I was supposed to have jury duty, but it was cancelled. I've been on a jury before, and it was really interesting, so I was kind of looking forward to it. BUT on the other hand, it's SO cold here...below zero, that I am also happy to be staying inside,too!

I dug out my Taylored Expressions."Punny Love" stamps and dies that I bought last year. I like tiny things, and these miniature dies are lots of fun. I didn't get a chance to make many cards with them last Valentines, so I am remedying that now!

I started with a NEW piece of plaid paper in blues that I found at my local craft store, and added a few Memory Box stitched hearts. I put the fish and rod inside one, and stamped the sentiment in black at the bottom. I decided it needed a blue few sequins,too. 

I'm entering this at:
Tic tac toe challenge (NEW paper, embossed stitched hearts, sparkle sequins)

Paper: SU white,real red, grey, textured blue, patterned paper
Ink: SU black
Stamps: TE Punny Love
Dies: MB stitched hearts, TE punny love
