SWEETHEART for VALENTINE'S DAY

I hope you had a joyous and blessed Christmas! Mine was great, and certainly very busy!

If you're wondering where iPICKS has been .... I've been having difficulties with Clipmarks and haven't been able to post. As soon as it starts working again, I'll get caught up with the iPICKS posts.

On to a card...
I am really hoping that this card is the first of many during my Winter Break! I used the Create with Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge #182, and the stamp set Sweetheart. I love the non-traditional Valentine's Day color scheme!

So glad I popped in and found this sweet card! Love to colors that you used and the embossed heart.

Hope you'll be able to get the issues with Clipart settled soon so you are able to share your fabulous weekly card finds!
