HSS Sketch Challenge #256~Valentine

Well oh my goodness, here I am again, 3 posts in one day.  Guess you might say I'm in crafty card mode, or otherwise know as a bit of pain, so stamping is a great way to take my mind off that, or at least try to, plus it's always fun to show others what I'm working on.  So I'm going to put this card in the challenge at: Hand Stamped Sentiments
  The bottom half of my card I used washi tape for the 3 stripes, however my little trick for that is that I put the tape on white cardstock and then glue it to my card, because it seems that the white on the washi tape picks up whatever color is behind it, and I thought this just gave it a crisp look.  I also thought taking the picture with the flash gave it a whole different appearance, you can see the linen like paper.  I used 3 decorative brad hearts to bring some sparkle to the tree.  All the stamps in this project are from Stampin up.  This is my first time making a square card, I suppose I'll have to hand deliver this one because I don't have an envelope to fit it.  haha  Unless I custom make one.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.
What are your thoughts on google+? I'm thinking about putting my blog there too.  Any suggestions? 
😊Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping😊
