Someone Special

I made this card for this week's challenge at Paper Craft Star. The sentiment that I used is from Daisy Doodles.

"Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to capture your heart."
The base of my card is pastel pink. I cut a square of white cardstock a little smaller than the card base. I embossed it using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I cut a strip of blue cardstock and punched it using a lace heart border punch across the bottom and attatched it to the middle of the card. I cut the sentiment out in a circle and backed it in pastel pink. I layered 2 blue paper flowers and two pink paper flowers and added a heart button to each one. I added them to the lower right side of my card.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
