Valentine's card for my hubby - various challenges

Well, with Valentine's Day coming up WAY to fast, I thought I better get my butt in gear and make at least ONE card for my hubby (still need to make 2 more for the kids!). Of course, there were many blogs with Valentine's day challenges, so I tried to incorporate them all! So ... for this Challenge I am entering the:
- Humble Pie Stamps challenge - LOVE
- Cute Card Thursday challenge - In the name of LOVE
- Simon Says challenge - LOVE
- Inky Impressions - Charming (add a charm)
- Crazy 4 Challenges - Be my Valentine

PHEW that is a lot of challenges! So without further adieu here is my card. I stamped the image, which is High Hopes, on Bristol Smooth paper and coloured her with my copics. The background paper is from my "stash" and unfortunately I have no idea what company it is from, BUT the hearts were so beautiful and I thought it added so much to the image, and it sets off the red heart on the little girls bottom. I used my nestabilities to cut and emboss the background. Behind the metallic heart paper I used fabric paper, to add some delicate details. Also I added the charm that simply says "LOVE" with a piece of red wire that I attached with a red metallic brad. The cardstock that I used is from Stampin Up.
