Skipping a Beat

 I won this adorable stamp set from My Favorite Things and it just came this week. As soon as I saw this cutie and the so sweet sentiment that came with it, I knew it had to be used for a Valentine's Day card for my husband.  I mean, seriously . . . "You Make My Heart Skip a Beat"?  It just had to be!
The card was almost completely inspired by challenges that had expired by the time I got it finish. : (  But I had them stuck in my head and it looked like I imagined so I kept going with it anyway.  I did manage to use up an item from my bits and pieces stash: the white scalloped circle.

Challenges (and inspiration from past challenges):
Sister Act Card Challenge #42--anything goes
My Favorite Things #161--sketch (unfortunately, I didn't finish in time, but I still like the sketch a lot)
One Sweet Challenge--Love
Cutie Pie #62--My cute valentine
Love to Scrap #23--Who Loves you Baby? (use the word LOVE)
The Paper Girls #49--Love your Love
Cuttin' and Stampin' #5--Sweethearts (I was also inspired by the color combo of their previous challenge: pink, orange, gray; sadly, I was also too late for that one!)\

Stamps: Verve "Text Objects" sentiment, "To the Moon" little heart trio inside, "Happy Valentine's Day" plain jane; My Favorite Things "Jump For Joy" image and sentiment inside
Papers: My Mind's Eye "Collectables";
Dies/punches: spellbinders standard circles, large; SU! scalloped circle punch
