Freshly Made Sketches # 19

Freshly Made Sketches has a new sketch up that has room for lots of different elements on the card. Here is my take on the sketch:

I needed another valentine card, so thought this might be the perfect fit for this sketch.  I cut out a scallop and then stamped a white heart inside each scallop.  Next I stamped a swirl on a pink PTI paper...the background was stamped with sweet blush using the Background Basics:  Hearts...it has a word sentiment that is very hard to read, but it talks about love etc...I then cut a strip of dp using a Martha Stewart edge die and scored it every 1/4 inch to make my own flower.  I had some stamps from MFT that had a lot of words that were perfect for a valentines card...so I used that as my background for the flower.  I don't think it needs any other sentiments on the face of the card.
