Valentine, Be Mine

Welcome to my new followers. Hope you find something here to interest you. I babysat our little grandson today. We popped out to the shop to get a couple of things I needed but otherwise we stayed at home and he played with the Duplo and some trains and cars. He doesn't say a lot, but is just starting to put names and noises to some of his toys.
I decided to cook a roast boned lamb leg that I picked up for half price while I was out. I didn't put it on until nearly 6 p.m and hubby didn't get home till about 9 - 9:15. Our youngest son had come over earlier, so he stayed for tea and we ate about 8pm. Poor Adrian had to reheat his in the microwave, not quite the same as having it fresh from the oven.
If your a regular visitor, you know me, yep, it's very late here in Adelaide and I've just finished my card. I spent several hours earlier in the day trying to make my Make It Monday DT project. It's finished, but had trouble with light reflecting off it so my photos are no good. Will have to try again in natural light tomorrow morning. You'll have to pop back in on Monday to see what I made! I had fun and also a bit of frustration making it, LOL.
So, that brings me on to sharing today's card.
I decided to do a Valentine's card as Valentine's Day is only a couple of weeks away now.

Front of card

Inside of card
Both Red and Pink cardstock from stash
DP is from 6x6 Paper stack - a freebie called Sweet Wishes
Image is from Whimsie Doodles called mailed my heart
Sentiments are from an unmounted set I bought on e-bay last year
Floral embossing folder (not sure of name)
Nestie heart die
Memento black ink pade
Copic Markers
Foam Pads
DS Tape roller

I distressed the edges of the card and paper and ink distressed the inside heart to give it some definition against the same colour background. It looks a bit too pink in the above scan.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
