With all my heart.....

Hello Everyone!!!

There are so many lovely challenges happening all around the craftyland. I plan to play with a few every week...then the week goes by I miss the deadline. This week I decided to do a few...

I loved the sketch & the inspiration pic of Fusion Card Challenge this week, so I decided to play along.
Here is my take....
I just got all my heart dies out and diecut some hearts out of some paper scraps.
The sentiment is from CASual Fridays Stamps.
I also used some embossing paste for some texture.
Simple how it turned out!!!

This card is for the following challenges..

Fusion Card Challenges: inps+/sketch.
C.R.A.F.T. - Love/Valentine.

Hope you like this card....
