M5D Sunset Meadows Valentine Card

Hi Everyone,  Sorry you had to wait so long for the reveal for this card, but the M5D new releases are now out today.  Go have a look.  There are some really awesome ones this week.  I have had so many crafting delays over the past month or two, and my latest was a lack of black printer ink.  With our bad weather here, I was not able to go out and buy some when I needed it and still had to get my card done in time, soooo what does a creative mind do in a bind????  Get creative and improvise :)  I decided to make this a vintage card and changed the colors to antique them and voila....no black ink needed.  Have any of you had to do something similar when caught in a situation like this? 
I posted a couple of pictures that show without the new M5D Valentine digi buttons, and then I decided that I wanted to add some to the card, so there are a couple that are shown with it too.  I really did go button size with these buttons, so that they would fit well on the ribbon.  These are so versatile and can be used with just about anything.  I hope that Sue will keep making these for every occasion. 
I know that some of these pictures may look like this is an easel card, but it isn't.  It is a gatefold turned sideways.  Just wanted to try something different to see what it would look like.  Do you like the look?  Have any of you tried this before? 

Here they are.....the new releases :)

WOW... I have to say that printing it in antique colors was the PERFECT SOLUTION!! And I just adore the way your made the heart frame around the couple with the white! Who would've thought up that?? YOU!! You are so creative Carolyn. And the sideways gate-fold... nope, I've never tried that before, but it totally works with this card. It's GORGEOUS inside and out! A real treasure from the heart. I can tell a lot went into it and your recipient will be so lucky to get this! *Ü* We are so blessed to have you on this team Carolyn! Thanks for bringing so much. ♥
