Hearts & Flowers Valentines Card

I created this card as my Design Team Valentine's entry over at CARD A DAY BLOG.
I wanted to create something quick and easy for making multiples. 
Supplies:
*White cardstock (5.5" x 8.5" folded) plus scrap
*Pink cardstock (5.5" x 4.25")
*Black Cardstock (2" x 5.5")
*Stamps:  Inkadinadoo "Heartfelt Love" and Hero Arts SD396 & "Flourish Background"
*Inks:  Jet Black Archival Ink & SU Whisper White
*Glue stick, tape runner, pink & green colored pencils, scissors
To Make Card:
1.  Stamp background on pink CS using black ink.
2.  Using black ink, stamp two small and one large square designs on white scrap CS.
3.  Using colored pencils, lightly add color to stamped images.
4.  Carefully cut out stamped images and glue to black CS.
5.  Using white ink, stamp sentiment to bottom of black CS.
6.  Attach black strip to pink CS and then glue to folded card base.

The card is entered into the following Challenges:
