Hearts for Him

I think this will be my hubby's valentine. I've made several but they were too feminine. I guess a woodland branch will be masculine enough and I really do like this one. I was glad to see it go up on Facebook when I posted it to SCS yesterday afternoon. That is always nice.

My card took about 3-4 minutes(love that) to make and honors the new Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers.  The Queen is Terri aka Brat Cards and here is the card I loosely cased. I loved her crackled bg but didn't think it would fit with my long branch. This Woodland Branch by Memory Box may be one of my favorite dies at the moment and can see I will use it a lot. The punch is Martha Stewart and wish I could find it online and give it a name. For some reason, I didn't label it as I always do.

The stamp I'm using for the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company and the set is Love Remains. I really love the font.

Challenges:
Pals Paper Arts-Just add any red
Little Red Wagon #118 wants to see Valentine's Day or Love in their challenge so I'm providing both.
Delightful Challenges-Use punches and dies---my branch is a Memory Box die (woodland branch) and the hearts are a Martha Stewart punch
