Card Challenge

So my first time entering a challenge and I am doing a sorta Valentines/I love you card for my husband. I am going to sneak it in his gym bag Friday morning. HE HE HE

Oh the challenge is for Cardz TV

I used Bump In The Night Cricut Cartridge for the cute image, popped up on some pop dots. I also decided it was a good time to raid my stash of scrap paper which I used scraps for the monster and banner. The card base and card layers were regular size sheets that I cut down.

I used a stamp that says I heart U, I popped that on some pop dots.

All the paper is from recollection's.

I also used antique linen ink from Tim Holtz to edge around everything except the heart which I used some Studio G chalk pink ink and a red Studio G ink.

I like that the papers are not screaming GIRLY.   I wanted a heart paper but not so HEARTY. Get it, Maybe.

I used pop dots, zig 2 way glue, ATG for my glueing.

My card is sorta small (good size for my hubby's gym bag).
4 by 9 for the Green base turns out to be a 4 by 4 1/2 card
Black layer is 3 3/4 by 4 1/4
Greenish heart paper is 3 1/2 by 4

The pictures are from my phone, there not the best, my camera is MIA and the challenge ends tommarow so I used what photo means I had.
