Sweet Sunday Sketch and Time Out Challenges

Hi friends!  I have a card today that is for three challenges, but I can only enter it in two of them.  Paper Smooches Sparks challenge has a great photo inspiration challenge that I based my card on, but I didn't use any of their stamps, so I can't enter it.  However, I am entering it in two others. 
Here's how I created my heart.  I cut 3/4" squares from two different pattern papers and some foil paper, then cut them in half on the diagonal.  I traced the heart die on some scrap paper and began adhering the triangles to it.  When I had the traced heart covered, I ran  it through my die cutting machine.  The arrow was cut from a die from PTI's Get to the Point die and the word is PTI's as well.  I covered it with a Wink of Stella shimmer brush and glossy accents.  The little heart above is a left over piece from the word die.  It's also cover in Wink of Stella shimmer and glossy accents.  The ivory base was run through a linen impression plate for some texture.  The sentiment I think is appropriate for today.  It's a line from a Beatles song and today is the 50th anniversary of their performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.  My hubby loves the Beatles, so this may be his Valentine card.
Here's the inspiration photo from Paper Smooches Sparks.  Wish I could have entered!
I used this fab sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

I'm also entering this in the Time Out DT call.  It's a new challenge that is similar to Just Us Girls with a different challenge each week.  I love those kinds of challenges.  Their theme is Love and/or Friendship.  Perfect for this time of the year, don't you think?  Fingers crossed I make their team!
