QFTD40, CES Challenges

It's ONE week until Christmas and I'm busy wrapping Christmas presents, hubby is out getting up leaves. Thought I would post a VALENTINE card...from one holiday to another. I sure don't need another Christmas card.

I made my card for three challenges:
QFTD40 on Splitcoaststampers: I cased a card made by Jo aka reddyisco. I love her style of cards. Here is her card I cased.
 I changed from her leaves to hearts.

CES Challenges #17 - Anything Goes
Totally Gorguss #61 Make something for someone special  (mine is a valentine)

My hearts are punched and falling into a pile showing a heap of love for that someone very special.
This was an easy card and I just went with stamping and punching.

Stamp:Stampin'Up! Yummy
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler and Pretty in Pink cs, black cs from Hobby Lobby
Ink: Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
 Accessories: Stampin'Up! oval and oval scallops, Martha Stewart heart graffiti punch, Fiskars heart border punch, Mark Richards gold metal brads

Love how you used the flourish as the distributor of the hearts that land in a nice little pile in the corner. Darling card :)

What a delightful card! I just love the design you came up with! Valentine's day will be here before we know it, so WTG for being ahead of the game! I packed up my Christmas stamps yesterday and pulled them back out today to make 2 more cards LOL I guess my brain isn't ready to move forward yet! One more week.....
I always forget about that little stamp in the yummy set and how cute it looks for a Valentine! Thanks for reminding me!
