Valentines Challenges & Creative Cowgirls Blog Hop

 There are a lot of Valentine's card challenges right now... so I decided to join in the fun. I have never made a card that was not square or rectangular, so this was a fun learning experience for me!  I think I will be making more round cards in the future because I love the way this card turned out!

The sketch: 

My Valentine Card: 

I used my Cricut to cut all of the shapes.  The heart balloon is a freebie from SVG Cuts.  I used a Sizzix Texturz Plate called Hearts Retro for the embossed hearts on my cardstock.  I thought the "Love is in the air" stamp sentiment went perfectly with the heart balloon.
