Love is in the air!

This week's challenge at the A Muse Studio blog is called Love is in the Air! This is your opportunity to make a Valentine or love related card and possibly win some bling! Here is my Valentine:

 I apologize for the dreadful picture above. It's wintertime in Colorado, and I just have to take what I can get in terms of light. I used the Vintage Labels and Quick and Cute Valentines stamp sets for this card.
 This card is chock full of a|s goodies! I used three dies, including the hearts, Vintage Labels and Scalloped Border. LOVE THEM!! I hope we have lots of new dies in the new catalog because my cards are starting to get redundant!
I am super sad to see the polka dot paper retiring. I use it ALL THE TIME! I know there will be many beautiful replacements, so no tears. There's a sneak peek for you on this card! The card base is one of our NEW colors, GRAPEFRUIT! It's a softer pink than Bubblegum, and much brighter than Blush and Shell. We now have FIVE gorgeous pinks in shades to satisfy every stamper's pink cravings whether you like the intense shout of pink drenched Watermelon or the sweet whisper of Blush.

As a finishing touch for this card, I added a strip of washi tape to the inside for a special pop of color. The back of a|s cardstock is white, making special touches easy to add on the inside. Not to mention that you don't have to line cards anymore!
