I figured I had better get going on some Valentine's Day cards, and the challenges out there are happy to oblige me! I stamped the heart from Stampin' UP's Sketch an Event set on white paper. Used the edge of a pink ink pad with the direct to paper technique on the heart strip as well as the card base. The metallic look was actually achieved by putting aluminum foil through the Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder. I stuck that to the card base with heart brads. Next I layered the patterned paper across the bottom. I also cut out another heart to stick on the side with a pop dot and pink pearls to wind their way to it. It's hard to see, but there is also diamond dust lining the hearts for some more sparkle!
This card qualifies for the following challenges:
Raise the Bar - Hearts
Stampin' for the Weekend - Valentine Theme
Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - Metallic
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Valentine's or Love
Paper Makeup Stamps Blog - Pink and Bling
