Framed Paper Rose Valentine

Instead of a regular ol' Valentine card, I decided to do something a little different for my best girlfriend - who by the way is super girly, and create a framed rose Valentine with vintage chic pink rose gift bag.
While I was out shopping the other day I popped into Michaels and found they have started putting out some really girly stuff for spring in their dollar section.  I picked out a shabby chic little chippy white frame, a packet of pink paper roses and a pack of tiny floral note cards.
First step in this easy little craft is to cut a piece of one of the note card to fit into your frame, now glue your little paper roses into a heart shape onto the paper you've cut out.  (Each little rose has a sticky backing, but they aren't sticky enough to stay so I glued mine with Elmer's.) Now insert into your frame.
I decided to create a little muslin bag for my little framed rose Valentine.  As usual I found the perfect vintage pink rose Valentine image over at Graphics Fairy and added the word Valentine and printed out on a iron on transfer paper.  Because there is wording on the image you will need to print this out as a mirror image, so if your photo or graphics program is unable to flip the image you can do this in a couple of easy steps at Picnik.
