Heart Shaped Easel Card

Hello my friends.  Look how early I am in making a Valentine's Day card!   I had this an idea for a heart shaped easel card and decided to try it out before I forgot about it. 
 I cut the card base using the heart from Gypsy Wanderings by Cricut.  Then created the scallops around the top heart with a scallop border punch.  I found the easiest way to do this, for me, was by cutting a slit into the flat side of each scallop then giving the whole strip a light misting of water.  I am able to then mold the border around the curves of the heart.

I used the latest sketch from Card Patterns as my starting off point.
(hint) turn it sideways and squint.
