One love One Life

My second post for today.  Now off to get ready for a birthday party/sleepover!

The CPS sketch again:
 
For my card I took in a few challenges.  I went with the JUGS challenge and made a split negative card (I just did this with hearts with my grade ones!); the Curtain Call challenge - Red, Cream and Kraft; The 365 Cards - Stack it up; and of course there are a few 'valentine/love' themed challenges out there: Creative Card Crew, Pile it On, Stampin Royalty, and The Pink Elephant.
  
The heart is cut with the Just Chillin Slice cartridge and the sentiment is from Unity.  Both of which can be purchased from Scrap-Mart.  You need to hop on over there to see all the fun new CHA goodies that Scrap-Mart will be carrying!
