Valentine's Day Mower Card

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I'm thinking about a card for my husband. I avoided the typical Valentine colors, for this one. Here are the general instructions. If I've not made something clear, please email or leave a comment and I'll get back to you with details.

  1. Using the A Muse Studio Grass die, cut two strips of green grass. 
  2. Using the A Muse Studio Clouds die, cut out one large cloud and two small ones.
  3. Stamp, color and cut out the lawn mower.
  4. Stamp each cloud with the sentiments. Stamp the "Love ya' ..." either as a strip on coordinating paper or on a small rectangle.
  5. Assemble as shown. (I adhered the first strip of grass, placed the lawn mower and adhered the second strip of grass.)
All products used in these projects are from A Muse Studio. The lawn mower and "Love ya' mower & mower" stamps are from the Hey, Man stamp set (SNSP058). The custom dies used are Clouds (TAD0003) and Grass (TAD0005). The "happy valentine's day" sentiment is from Essential Sentiments (SASU009).  The A Muse Studio dies can be used in most die cutting machines such as the Big Shot, Cuttlebug and Epic 6 and several others.
What colors would you use? What extra touch would you add? As always, your comments are welcome. As many of you know, I use repositionable glue as my adhesive. If you suggest it, I can change it. Maybe I'll make the changes and repost! Actually, you can count on it. I'm suddenly not liking the color of the cardstock I used as the base.
