A very special Valentine's card

This Valentine's card looks more complicated than it is, as my card class found out.  It's really very easy.

Oh dear I think I could open a Valentines Card shop with all the cards I've made!  Never mind it was fun making it.

The cherry cobbler card base is folded in a Z fold and the front panel can be tucked behind the butterfly or left open.

The inside sentiment reads "love is like a butterfly it goes where it pleases and pleases where it goes".  I stamped the heart from the Hostess Level 1 set, Punch Potpourri and sponged the edges with riding hood red ink.  It was then matted onto riding hood red card stock and mounted again onto basic black.  I used the scallop trim border punch along the bottom.  Love Letter designer paper was used to put two panels on the card - one under the front panel and one on the inside of the card.  The butterflies are from the Butterfly Print stamp set and punched out using the butterfly punch.
