Emo Valentine Christian

Christian is a fun character and unfortunately I didn't get to show him in his tighty-whities, but it still works out. :D This is the only card I added an extra embellishment and had to use some chipboard wings covered, of course, with Liquid Pearls. After I had finished, I thought it would have been cool to make Christian look like a playing card... but alas, maybe next time.

Did you know? Saint Valentine (in Latin, Valentinus) is the name of several martyred saints of ancient Rome. The name "Valentine", derived from valens (worthy, strong, powerful), was popular in Late Antiquity. Of the Saint Valentine whose feast is on February 14, nothing is known except his name and that he was buried at the Via Flaminia north of Rome on February 14. It is even uncertain whether the feast of that day celebrates only one saint or more saints of the same name
