Love is in the Air!

I made this card for 2 challenges. I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop SSS93, along with Speedy the cat's Friends challenge #40 which is to make a Valentine. I've had this stamped image for quite a while and I'm pretty sure it's by Penny Black. I colored it with Tombows and a wet brush and used dp from Echo Park's Be Mine collection. I embossed the smaller panel with Cuttlebug's larger spot ef, but then covered most of it up with the image? LOL I cut a couple of hearts from scraps and added 2 heart-shaped brads in silver and white. I made some tiny dots around the edges with a white sharpie marker.
I hope you're having a super Saturday so far!
