Ruby wedding anniversary

I was asked to make a Ruby wedding anniversary card. I have to confess that I re-purposed some bits from a couple of cards I made long ago and didn't really like.

The spotted background was made with an embossing folder and the swirls with a stencil, using fired brick distress ink. The hearts were die cut using snippets and flowers from stash.

This is for:
