Surrounded by Love

I am running a little late, but this is a Valentine Card I made for my daugher.  I love this sweet image from Art By Miran called Be My Valentine.

Kit and Clowder released a free Backgrounds III tutorial with the February Create and Learn classes, so the background is done using one of the techniques in this tutorial.  It seems like I am always struggling when it comes to implementing backgrounds, but this was so easy and it looks so beautiful!  Thank you Alyce Keegan!  I am constantly learning something new from you!
