In the mood for LOVE... GDT spot card

Hi all

Here is my card for my first GDT on C.R.A.F.T challenge blog

I have cut out a heart shape aperture out of the white card stock. Under this I have used some black backing paper with music manuscript printed in red. I have then cut out by hand some stencil letters and overlayed this onto more red backing paper and embellished with red diamante. The poppies were bought from a garden centre and I dismantled them. Charm is from my stash.

There is a lot of LOVE around in blogland this week so I am entering into the following challenges:
