Happy Valentine's Day

My husband and I both loved the Swedish vampire movie "Let the Right One In,"  so that seemed like the perfect inspiration for a valentine for him this year.  After all it was a love story, of sorts.  The movie was visually gorgeous.  I was drawn into the grays, whites, and blacks of the Swedish winter scenery, and each scene contained a little splash of red.  I used some soft graffiti fabric I made and red velvet bits.  The backing is a luscious black velvet.  I'm very happy with it and think it captures the movie quite well.  I'm very fortunate to be married to a man who does not think I need to be locked up when I give him something like this.
