Valentine Sketch Card

Created this Valentine card using a sketch which you can see below. Used Darice Kraft core'dinations pattern cardstock for base. Used scraps of Valentine scrapbook paper.  Used Cricut cartridge Artbooking for the red heart border. Used Cricut cartridge Artiste for the red scallop heart & white heart. The white heart is the red scallop heart that consists of 3 hearts and with Gypsy I used the hide option to hide the scallop & one of the inner hearts. Added white glitter tape. Added heart gems.
