Fitztown February Challenge

Its another month and another challenge over at Fitztown. That's right Fitztown has changed to a monthly challenge. Of course being February, which means Valentines day and all things love, the theme this month is Have a Little Heart. This can be in your image,embellishments, a die cut or pattern paper, so long as there is a heart on your project. So with that in mind, I thought a wedding card would be perfect.
