February SPS Hop and Challenge - Hearts!

Hello! It's the first Saturday of February (my goodness...where DID January go?!?!?!) - which means it is time for the monthly blog hop with Shop Pumpkin Spice - which means a new weekly challenge for you to play along with! If you just hopped over here from June - you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning so you don't miss any of the inspiring stops - head over to Shop Pumpkin Spice to read the details - or you can find the entire blog line-up at the bottom of this post. The theme this month is hearts - easy this time of year, right? Here is what I made this time around:
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the US map, as well as the cute heart. LOVE how beautifully it cut! 
All my pattern paper is from Crate Papers Fourteen 6x6 paper pad - such pretty colors! I inked all the edges with distress ink in coordinating colors.
I used some kraft paper run through my Cuttlebug for a background, then matted it in white paper and used a heart shaped doily folded around it for the background. 
I used foam adhesive to attach the map piece, then the heart over the top. The tiny "hello" is from Crate Paper's Pretty Party Chipboard Accents - it is one tiny piece from the top edge - I thought it fit perfectly on here! 
Finally, I wrapped some jute twine around and tied it in a bow, before using more foam adhesive to attach the entire panel to my pattern paper on my card base.
I hope you will join us this week - and make sure and hop along and enjoy all the beautiful projects! Thanks for stopping by today! You're next stop is Cheryl - and here is the entire blog line-up in case you get lost:
