Love Notes - Valentine card

Hello Delightful friends and family
Well I've been enjoying all the wonderful Valentine cards I've been seeing throughout blogland and Pinterest and so I have finally jumped in and made my first one for 2014.  I was inspired by the sketch at Clean&Simple stamping challenge (#275) although I don't think it's anything close to being clean and simple (ha!)

Here is the sketch that inspired me and you can see it had a mind of it's own ;-)  

 I used my WR Memory Keeps Envelope board to create the envelope (fits a 3x3 card).  The base is a pre-scored white card (A2) and envelope set from Paper Accents.  The designer paper (Crate Paper - Love Notes) and card stock are from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit this month.  I've used a couple of different stamps.  The focal stamp is this darling pup from Penny Black (Crush - wood mount) and I've stamped Crush with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I've embossed with clear embossing powder on the top half of the card with a heart stamp from Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month (January : Kiss Me).
The scalloped heart is a Marvy Uchida mega punch, the bookmark is a die from Taylored Expressions.

(inside of card - cute sentiment stamps from the Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions and the punch is EK Success Binding Edge Edger)

I'll be entering this card at:
