A Round Array Valentine, PPA187 & TSOT150

Hello, all! I'm back today as promised with another Valentine's Day creation. I used two stamp sets, A Round Array and Love & Laughter. I love the way this card came out, and I don't say that very often! All the credit goes to the two challenges that inspired me.

The cheerful color combination is compliments of the challenge at Pals Paper Arts. I love it! 

The great layout is from the Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge. This is one of those layouts that I'm sure I'll use again and again.  The "twist" is to use polka dots on your creation, which I did with the red DSP.

I love these adorable heart images! The base layer (the circle of hearts) was stamped with the A Round Array Stamp Set, and then punched using the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. The larger heart in the center was stamped using the Love & Laughter Stamp Set, and punched with a 1/2" Circle Punch.
