Love is in the Air

Here's another card made from the leftovers of the last class.  I love using the components of one card and challenging myself to make something a little bit different.



Again I used the Sahara Sand card with Island Indigo and White.  The heart from Punch Potpourri (retired) was stamped in Sahara Sand then overstamped with the butterfly from Kindness Matters and the postmark from French Foliage. (I stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the heart.)

Challenges:
CAS at SCS Love is in the Air

CAS-ual Fridays: Love Song.  
     I'm going to show my age here.  The song I'm thinking of is "I Love You a Bushel and a Peck".  I sing it to my grandchildren all the time.

Simon Says Stamp:  Have a Heart

Stampendous February Challenge: Love is in the Air

CASology:  Red  (I hope this tiny red heart is enough for them. It's what draws my eye.)

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
