Music gives the heart wings

Looks like I'm a little late for Valentine's Day, doesn't it?  Actually, I just picked up this sentiment stamp at a scrapbooking rummage sale this weekend and wanted to make a card to go with it.  My husband was watching over my shoulder as I made it, but maybe by our anniversary in June, he will have forgotten about it!  Otherwise, I think this would work for an anniversary or wedding card for any of his musician friends or family members.
This card is a gatefold card.  I read the instructions on the Splitcoast Stampers site, but I modified the dimensions because I like my cards to fit in A2 envelopes for easy mailing.  So, I cut my cardstock at 4.25x11 inches.  Then I placed it horizontally on my score board and scored at 2.75 and 8.25 inches.  The sides then fold in.  The red layers on the sides measure 2.5x4 inches and the pink layers on the sides (which are embossed with the Cuttlebug Allegro folder) measure 2.25x3.75 inches.  The black square in the center measures 3x3 inches and the white square measures 3.25x3.25.  The squares, of course are adhered to one side of the card only so that it can open.
The heart is from Create a Critter.  The wings are from Indie Art and the banner is from Graphically Speaking.  I chalked around the edge of the banner.
This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut #48--Emboss it!
