Shannon's Sentiment Challenge

This week at Shannon's Sentiments we are sponsoring the Etsy Inspired challenge and are doing the challenge as well. This weeks Etsy inspired store is Daisy Petal Designs. Using one of Shannon's Valentine images and an item in the Etsy store this is what I came up with.
All the layers of this flower and colors stood out to me to make this card:

I guess it is a little hard to tell but the "O" in love is four layers of flowery goodness. The one after the "E" is just two layers. I think on the inside I may put a large letter "U" and then Happy Valentine's Day after that. I did use a gel pen on all the white you see on the flowers by Uni-Ball. The flower punch and ink are by Stampin Up; cardstock is by The Paper Co; patterned paper by My Minds Eye; border punch by Martha Stewart; digital image which I cut apart by Shannon's Sentiments. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other DT examples and enjoy your weekend by doing something cre8ive:)
I'm also entering this card in to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp-Love is in the Air
AiFactory-Red and Pink
Paper crafting journey-Love is in the air
Papertake Weekly- Anything goes + optional flowers
Paper playtime- anything goes with a digi (Love is a digi)
Moxie Fab World challenge Tuesday Trigger by  using the photo below. I was inspired by the flourishes. I think they match the flourishes in my patterned paper and the edge of the cupcake holder inspired me to use a border punch on my card. You have until tomorrow to submit your own interpretation of this photo.
