Love is in the Air

Evening Everyone,
I hope that you have survived Monday unscathed.
I seem to be going down with a cold, can't breathe and sneezing like there is no tomorrow, but never mind.
My card tonight was made specifically to enter into a couple of the challenges that I checked out at the weekend.
I have started to get really organised, or sad, and I make myself a list on a Saturday of challenges that I fancy entering including printing out a picture of the sketch or the colour challenge, and listing when the challenge closes.
It may be sad but it does make it easier when it comes to posting them and I don't have to try and remember where I saw this particular item in Blogland, or if I am too late for the challenge which is always a bit annoying.
Now I am not usually a CAS type of a girly so this was definitely a stretch for me, but I knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as I saw the lovely sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches.
The central Heart has been die cut from a piece of white card using a Nestie. the card had been dry embossed using a Cuttlebug Heart Embossing Folder.
I sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edge and then mounted it onto a Scalloped Heart cut from Gold card.
The background papers are from my stash, and I used a couple of DooHickey dies to cut the bottom flower and leaves. The top flower is a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is from an Impression Obsession stamp set WP16 Sentiments 1.
Once again I used some of the left over bits to embellish the envelope.
I would also like to enter this into the following challenges
Penny Black and More - Love is in the Air.
ABC Challenges - Valentine's Day
