Happy Valentine's Day

I can now share that challenge from my stamping group, I used it for my hubby's Valentines card.
It is a Twist pop up card. Here is the Link if you would like to give it a try yourself. This was fun and fairly easy to do, the only thing I would say is if your cardstock that you are using for the twist part is fairly thick, make sure that you have it down from the fold of your card, I think I applied mine right to the fold instead of just below and by the time I held it closed then tried to open it to make sure it worked it wasn't able to move it, it still works for me but until I did a little more burnishing it was kind of hard to get the card totally closed but it works now.

It's hard to tell but on the very bottom heart I stamped Be Mine.

Here is the inside.

Hubby loves the great outdoors so I know he will love the pop up images. 
I wrote the message below, after taking pictures :)

Ooooooh gorgeous, Connie! I just ordered a die to make a similar type card. It will probably take me a while to figure it out. I love the vintage colors you chose.
