"Love is in the air" - Challenge Me Monday #97

The entire card - where you can see the inside of the card after folding over part of the front.

Is everyone ready for Valentine's Day?  With only a couple more days left, I am finishing up a couple last minute items on my check list....  One item being a card for my husband, who has really come to appreciate & expects my homemade cards. I wanted to make a card with hearts on the card, since the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is 'Love is in the air' where you are to use a heart on your project. 
I used paper with hearts, a heart in the words that say "I love u" as well as the heart on the lovebug.  I did a couple different things on this card than I haven't done before....  I created a standard 4x6 card, but folded over the front of the card by 1", layered the folded piece with paper & twine, and then glued it down where you would be able to see part of the inside of the card's color.  I also used a circle punch to cut out several circle's which I glued behind one of the layers of paper to create a scalloped look.  I like how folding over part of the front & the faux scallop look....thinking I will use them again in other projects.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
