Another Valentines Day Card :)

I decided to create this card with two challenges in mind. A sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and a challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
I used a kit I got from the last craft show I went to in Sydney from My Mind's Eye called Sate of the Heart by Jen Wilson. The papers I used are called Full of Love and Sweet Nothings as well as a heart and border strip from a matching sheet of die cuts.

I used a Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Hearts Die to create an inner piece for the heart die cut and stamped it with a Sweet Sentiments stamp from Basic Grey in Fired Brick Distress Ink. I then used some foam squares to adhere the heart and heart die cut together and then to adhere them to the card.

This is my first time entering a sketch challenge so we shall see how it goes lol. Using papers and die cuts from the same kit sure speeded up the process too. One of the quickest cards I have made lately lol. I spent hours working on flower placement for a card earlier today haha...

Happy Scrappin'
