Be Mine?

CAS(E) This Sketch #206 came to my rescue today! I was making a valentine card using my December 2016 and January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kits. This is my first shaker card and it's amazing how easy it was. However, when I went to stick my card base to the shaker part, I turned it over and to my surprise it was quite crooked. There was no way to remove it. A few days ago,, I had written down the sketch from Thursday...
 
So, now, here's my card!


The Real Red mat (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) is behind the Whisper White card base (5 1/2 x 8, scored at 4). I did it that way so I could write on white. I think next time I will make the card base 5 1/4. My biggest problem was figuring out how to measure for the Red Glimmer piece. If you know how to do that, please leave me a comment. I punched hearts in Blushing Bride Glimmer,Red Glimmer, Dazzling Diamonds and Silver Glimmer papers.

For the inside, I used the cut-out square from the front frame, die cut a heart and stamped it. The DSP is from Stacked with Love. The rest of the ingredients are from the Paper Pumpkin kits. There are a few flaws but I don't think my 9 year-old penpal from Maine will mind!

Thanks for looking.
