Hero Arts Challenge - Valentine's Day Card

I recently uploaded a bunch of cards to Flickr and participated in my first Hero Arts challenge.  There are a few challenges for February, but I decided to participate in the sketch challenge part because I was in need of a Valentine's Day card for Frank and didn't want to have to think about the layout.

I also wanted to use this "Key' stamp.  I'll be honest - as I was putting the card together, I really wasn't happy with how it was going...but then it started to grow on me.

I stamped and embossed the keys and then cut it out with a circle Nestie and layered it on a scallop nestie. Before adhering that to the card base, I stamped the key stamp in Versamark a few times.  I stamped an extra key and cut it out, layering it on a button.   I created the sentiment on my computer.

Here are the sketches for the challenge.  I used the first one for my card!

And...of course Buddy and Nolie had to give their daddy a Valentine's Day card too!  They wanted to keep it simple because, you know...they have paws and not I helped them 'just' a little:

Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Thanks for your visit!
