Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello Friends
Happy Valentine's Day!

I'd like to share the card I made for my hubby, and I must say I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out!  I've probably only made 3 shaped cards in my 2 years of card making, so it was really fun putting this heart shaped card together.  I found it on the Cricut cartridge Life's a Party which I recently purchased.

I used a number of cartridges to make this card:
Life's a Party - Heart shaped card cut at 5"
(the card measures 5" x 6" wide so it fits nicely in a
5x7 envelope)
3 Birds on Parade - "Love Shack" cut at 1-1/2"
Chore Chart - Bird cage cut at 2-3/4"
(no shadow with this image, so I cut it by hand and embossed it with Swiss Dots)
Tie the Knot - Love birds cut at 1"
Heart flourish cut at 2-1/4"
Embossed the red heart background with Cuttlebug Geometric Rings
(I love this new embossing folder!)

I tied a small bow with twine to the bird cage, and added some dimensional heart stickers from
EK Success. 
Aren't they just so sweet?!

Finished off the inside with a few more paper hearts, matching the one on the front.  Typed the sentiment on my computer and then used the Center Point feature to cut the white heart.  Couldn't resist using "Tweet-heart"!  But I did have to cover up the rest of my sentiment!

Hope you liked my card.  I appreciate your visit.  Thanks for stopping by.
