HSS Color Challenge...Be Mine

Hi Everyone,
Popping in with a quick post of  a simple card that I created for Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  This week's colors are one of my favorite color combos:
I had a vision of creating a little envelope, and having a sweet note pop out when you opened the envelope, and that's exactly how my card turned out.

This card is for my hubby, one of 2 cards that I will give him for Valentine's this year.  I hope he likes it.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: IBS Be Mine, SU! S.W.A.K. (retired)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Accessories: New Arrival Circuit Cartridge (for the envelope), Self-Adhesive Foam Mounts.
