Valentine's Day Cards

I'll admit I'm a slacker. But I have good reason! We've only been back from Disney World a week tomorrow and work has been crazy. So I've not had the energy to play with paper as much this week.

Since it's Friday and my dear husband is out for the night, I decided once I put the girls to bed to make our Valentines to mail out this weekend. I used Rochelle's instructions found off the Score Pal site here. I made mine REALLY simple (only stamping on the front and inside) and just added a matted photo of us from Disney. I did embellish the heart on front with Diamond Stickles (dontcha LOVE Stickles?).


I'll write Happy Valentine's Day on the inside tomorrow before I mail them out. But I need help. I can't decide if I should keep the bow (as the above closed one) or not (below photo). If I don't keep the bow, is it too plain or do I add something? Give me your thoughts.




Recipe:
Paper - The Paper Company, GP
Ink - Brillance & SU
Stamps - Studio G
Misc - MM Staples, Stickles
