Card Design: From the Heart Stamps February Challenge

http://fromtheheartstamps.com/community/blog/
It is time to post my project for the February, From the Heart Stamps progressive stamp of the month challenge, and boy not a minute too soon since the link up expires in just a few short hours.

In order to enter this challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  While you are there, have a look around.  They have some really great images.  Below you will find the card I'm entering for the February challenge. 

Here are my card and details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...
