Happy Valentines Day Card - Paper Craft Star and Paper Issues Challenges

I told myself this year I was going to try to join in on at least one if not two challenge blogs a month.  The other day I was on Angi's blog, Cokie Pop Paper  admiring her DT card she made for the challenge over at Paper Craft Star. Thanks for the inspiration Angi!  Their current challenge #30 is to scraplift a Paper Craft Star Creative Team Member.    As I was visiting each of the DT blogs, I came across a beautiful card that one of their DT members, Karen Duran of 
Paper Loves Glue  made and just knew that this was the one! 
Here is my card:
and
here is a picture of Karen's card:
I used up some papers and embellishments I had from Pink Paislee's Bayberry Cottage, a Prima flower that I took apart and placed under the scalloped circle and used some $1 stamps I bought at JoAnns Fabrics.  I thought it would be fun to make a Valentines Day card in  non traditional colors!
Here are a few close ups:

I am also entering this card over at Paper Issues Valentines Day Party challenge! 
Thanks for stopping by!
