Valentine Card

Hello everyone!
I guess it’s no secret that I’m a complete and total ‘Challenge Junkie’, so of course I  created this card for a few challenges:
Less is More  ~ Our challenge is to create a one layer card and the theme is ‘Hearts’.
The Muse Challenge  ~ This week our Muse is the incredibly talented Therese Calvird , who inspired the design for my card.
Addicted to Stamps and More  ~ This week we are being asked to create a card for a holiday, and I chose Valentine’s Day
.


I find one layer cards to be very tricky, because I always want to add a few gems or enamel dots, so this really was a challenge for me. I die cut, then masked the angled hearts die cuts (my fave) from Clearly Besotted on to an Eclipse masking sheet and inked them in various colors. Then, I stamped the tiny hearts with Versamark and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment in black ink, and the arrow is embossed with Zing Glitter EP. And, that’s it for my one layer card! 

I hope everyone is having a great week! 
Barb

Barb you did one layer wonderfully. So smart to add depth and texture with the embossed little interior hearts. I might have to borrow that idea!
