Checkered origami heart

There are so many different origami fold patterns which create hearts.  The checkered heart really piqued my interest and I just had to give it a try.  You start out with a square piece of paper (I used double sided CTMH DP.) which you fold into 64 smaller squares.  Then with just a few folds you have a beautiful checkered heart.
The "LOVE" stamp is just one word cut out after stamping a larger CTMH sentiment stamp.
I've followed the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 171 for my card layout and will be submitting this card to their challenge,
 
and also to:
Fairy Tale Challenge - Something with a Heart
Simply Create Too Challenge #178 - Valentine's Day or Hearts
Aud Sentiments Challenge #124 - Valentine or Love
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #296 - Valentines Day/Love
