Die Cuttin' Diva Guest Designer "Love"

Hey there blogger friends! 
Today I'm happy to be sharing a card as a guest designer on the Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge Blog.  I was so excited to be invited back again.

Thank you, Die Cuttin' Divas!
This week's challenge uses the sketch below...

Since Valentine's Day will be here soon, it was the obvious choice for the theme of my card.

 This 5" x 7" card has an ivory base layered with a combination of Graphic 45's Calendar Pages and Amour Collections matted with a coordinating green. I love vintage Valentines and these papers were the perfect choice.

For my take on the sketch, I made the center circle a square cut using the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Squares.  I cut the hearts using the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Hearts.  The placement of the largest heart die on the patterned paper allowed for the sentiment to be included.

I placed a third heart cut around the word "Always" behind and just above the sentiment word, "Love",  another Tutti Designs die.

From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock
Graphic 45 Amour and Calendar Pages Collections
Tutti Designs Die Cuts
Love Word Set
Nesting Stitched Hearts
Scalloped Stitched Nesting Squares

Love how this card turned out...
