            Those who are regular online on FB may be worrying "where is megha".Today I was very busy with many work.first was cook did'nt came ,so prepared lunch...that's okie ..not a big deal.Big deal was tomorrow is valentine day and I want ot make card for my hubby . I am not worried of hiding from him , as I daily craft this or that -so I know he will not interfere ,and I was right .My card was ready few minutes before and I am crazy to show .Difficult task with this card was , I want to incoperate most of the challenges live on blogs.
What all I did in this -wood grain design I learnt from kavitha HERE
I did stamping with versa mark and heat embossing...lovin it.
Added faux stitch with silver pen on tags.I t includes 14 tags 7of days before valentine and 7 of days after valentine .I n this ,I wrote positively all the days of after valentine ,which where of negative wording's normally.Quotes on tag are some searched by googling , some  wrote of my own for my dear hubby.
I f you notice ,the card is of unique style ,a gatefold alteration -its my idea ,never seen anywhere.Tieing of ribbon is also different and yess its also my idea
Freebie used is from ICR ,I oulined and doodled with silver pen..
Used heart punch
Used washi tape
Used tag rings from old earings
Ribbons from stash
Card stocks local purchase

And the secret is under neath is photo mat to place photo .
