First of Many

I just started working on my Valentine's Day cards.  And I just figured out that I need 18 of them!!  Yikes, I better get working!!  So, he is the first of many:
Nice and easy.  It all started with the pink dotted circle which was in my "bits and pieces" stash that I am working on using up.  Once again, I thought this would be a tough one to use because of the color, but I'm really enjoying stamping on dark panels and the boldness of this one is balanced by the black accents and the chevron pattern.

Challenges:
Lacy Sunshine--Have a heart
Love to Scrap Challenge #47--love is in the air
The Paper Girls #73--anniversary or love
Sweet Stamps #207--love is in the air
Raisin Boat #30--love is in the air
