Dies R Us - Valentine Hugs

Dear Ones~
C'mon spring!!! I am so tired of winter, with all the slush and cold. But, at least I have my cozy craft room in which to hibernate. I am a lucky girl.
Today's offering is for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog. Here is my card:

And here is how I made it:
I began by cutting out my background panels with the WAFFLE FLOWER FANCY LABELS 2 DIES. I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder by Cuttlebug to emboss the pink panel.

Then I created my die cuts. I used the TUTTI SWIRLY HUGS
which I cut out twice, once in white, once in pink. I isolating the pink letters and glued them onto the white.
Next I used the SUE WILSON FAUX QUILLED BLOOMS to cut out my flowers and leaves.
And lastly, I used the beautiful SUE WILSON SWIRLY LEAF TRIO for some more embellishment. I LOVE this set. It's just gorgeous.

Now it's time to put it all together. Here is another view.

Here are the dies I used:
