Koala Valentine

I have been trying to get in the mood to do Valentine's cards, but just can't seem to get started.  I have several ideas floating around in my noggin, but just unable to get going.
Today My Pink Stamper (http://www.mypinkstamper.com/) had a challenge to make something that makes you happy or reminds you of spring. I made this cute koala from Create a Critter with his iridescent balloon. So I am going to enter my cute koala in her challenge.

The cute koala is on page 49.  I cut the balloon from the shift image of the same cartridge.  I wish you could see the paper the balloon is cut from in person.  It changes color and the hearts change shape as you look from different angles.  I thought it would make it look like a mylar balloon. Too cute. I, of course, put it on an Action Wobble because if love the way it lets it move, like it is floating.
I used the Cuttlebug and the Conversation Hearts folder to emboss the front.
On the inside I used a Martha Stewart stamp around the page punch that I picked up last year.  The stamp was from a set that I have had a while with different holidays, but I don't have the original packaging so I don't remember the brand.  Sorry.

Hope you enjoy.  Comments are always appreciated.
