Happy Heart Day

I really enjoyed working with the the Unity Hip Hop Sketch #41 (HHSC41) for my last card, so I wanted to give it another go. My round card size is limited by the size of my punches (only up to 3" in diameter), and I wanted a bigger card this time. So I adapted the sketch and mounted the round portion on a square card, which also happens to be an easel card for All Things Unity Challenge #23, to make a tri-fold or easel card.

I also played in these challenges:
Thanks for taking a peek!
