Sending Love to My Favorite Electrician...

Hello friends!
Just a quick post here to share a card I made for my favorite electrician!
...and in case you didn't know, my favorite electrician is my hubby! :)

I pulled out this really cute set from Lawn Fawn which was perfect to make an "electrical" Valentine card for hubby.  I know I will be able to use this set for several cards for him besides just for Valentine's Day! :)  I thought this "Turn Me On" stamp set would be great to place over a wood-grain background.  I embossed the sentiment on the red with white embossing powder.

Here's a closer view of the hearts and light bulbs.  So when I was stamping the inside of the card, the front flipped backwards while the glossy accents were still wet...so it got slightly messed up, but I don't think this is something that hubby will be too much aware of.  I might consider "redoing" the one light bulb.  I've also added some Wink of Stella to the hearts and the light bulbs before I topped them with glossy accents.

I'm going to add this card to the Lawnscaping Challenge before it ends tomorrow.

Hope you've enjoyed my Valentine's card today!!  Thanks for stopping by
See you again very soon! :)

If I were to make a card for an electrician, hubby or not, I don't think I'd have any idea, I certainly don't have anything in my stash for this theme, you hear me building up reasons to get this set, right? I do know some electricians, so I might need this set, very much.
Such a cute card, I'm sure it'll be loved!!
