Love You for my Hubby

This is my hubby's Valentine's Day card.  I hadn't posted it earlier because I've had a tough time getting the colors right in the picture.  I have taken about 20 pictures with different settings on my camera, but the colors still are not right.  And it's not my favorite card I've ever made.  Don't we all have those?  The red is not an orange red; I think it is Bazzill Red Devil.  Anywho, the card was based on the sketch over at Mojo Monday a few weeks ago.  Since I didn't get good pictures of it, I didn't link it to the challenge there at Mojo Monday.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card: 

How the card was made:

Size 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Cardstock:  American Crafts and Bazzill
Embossing:  Cuttlebug folder
Hearts and "Love You":  Cuttlebug dies
Zig Zag ribbon:  Unknown
Jewels:  Queen & Co.
Scalloped Square:  Nestabilities (Cut in half)
Scalloped Circle:  Nestabilities
Border punch:  Fiskars
Thanks for looking and for any comments you leave.

Beautiful Tammy! I know it can be frustrating when the colors don't photograph right. I've had the happen to me many a time! Love the red, black and white and the use of the rick rack!
