Soft Valentine--for next year!

The current Stampendous! challenge is Love is in the Air, the current PDCC challenge colors are carnation, mint & juniper & the Die Cut Divas challenge is Untraditional Valentines.  Love when I can figure out how to combine challenges.  I don't have a Stampendous! heart image so looked for one that could be made into a heart & found this swirl in the Bold Blossoms set which I simply stamped twice, side-by-side to make a pretty modern heart--at least that's what I see--LOL!  The inks are VersaMagic Pink Petunia, Aloe Vera & Aegean Blue.  Each image is die cut with Spellbinders Oval & matted with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval & they're mounted with foam tape. Recollections clear alphabet stickers are mounted on a scrap of cardstock, trimmed & attached with foam tape--thought the font went well with the images.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug's Geometric Rings--love it's larger size!  I used A Blog Named Hero's sketch--which appealed to me because of it's simplicity.  Yah--one Valentine ready for next year! I'd love to hear what you think.
