A Recipe Challenge At Cards For Men

This week over at Cards for Men the challenge is a recipe.  Your card/project must have 1 image, 2 design papers and 3 embellishments.  You can use 3 of the same embellishment, as I have or 3 different ones.  I cheated a bit and made my embellishments from my second Design Paper because I wanted a fairly clean design.  I actually made three cards using the same format because I have three young sons.  You can see the other two at the end of this post.

The prize up for grabs is a £10 voucher to spend at One Stop Card Crafts, an absolutely fab shop.  You can find the full details over on the main post.

The stamp I used in this (and the other two) card was from a Sweet 'n' Sassy set that I bought last year to make Valentines.  I'm ashamed to say, this is the first time they've been used.  The sentiment is part of the image so it's all done in one go.  I coloured the image with promarkers.  The design papers are both from Basic Grey - Origins range and I used my Cricut to cut out the hearts.  The card base is a scrap of Bazzill Basics I had in my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
