Collage-ish style Valentine

I'm not usually very good at pulling off the collage look, but this one I like. I started with vanilla Bazzill cardstock, believe it or not! I think it came out pretty nice. Valentine measures 5 1/2 x 6 inches overall. Can you guess how many products I used on here?! There's a lot going on!

Flowers of course, and the large chocolate drop die by My Creative Time.

I love tickets. Added this metal key charm because it's cool.

Spray of flowers using the Memory Box leafy flourish die and Martha Stewart hydrangea punch.

I love how the shrinky charm turned out. I used a QK heart doily die and stamped with staz-on ink using My Creative Time heart stamp from the 100% Sweetness set. Yes. I cut the shape from shrink plastic, stamped with staz-on, and shrunk like normal. Super, super cute. The size of the die is approx 2x1 3/4, stamp is 1x1 3/4. When shrunken, the charm measures 1"x1/2".

Hope you like! I had a ball making it. Not even sure what to do with it yet, to be honest! LOL Maybe it will go in my Etsy store....? Happy weekend!
