Happy Valentine's Day

I made this valentine card using Special Delivery from Karen's Doodles. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. The sketch that I used is from Papertake Weekly. The base of my card is white backed in red. I embossed the two pieces of white cardstock behind the image using cuttlebug embossing folders (dots & swirls). I backed each in red. The sentiment I used is from Studio G stamps. I colored the heart and backed it in red. I added a red heart button and two red pearls.I am also entering this card into the challenges at:
