Embossed Heart

This card is for the Holiday Challenge Extravaganza #8--an inspiration challenge that can be found here. I chose to be inspired by the colors for my card and I used Mercy's sketch #23 for my layout. AND, another Valentine's Day card--another triple header! YAY!!!

My base card is Whisper White, then a layer of silver metallic card stock, then a layer of DP from Basic Grey's Perhaps 6 x 6 pad. The next element is Bravo Burgundy on silver, the next is Pirouette Pink on silver. The focal image is a stamp from the Always set, stamped in Whisper White craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder (note to self: get white embossing powder) on Rose Red card stock layered on silver card stock. Both layers were cut/embossed with Lables Two Nestabilities dies and adhered with 3M foam squares. Two little Hero Arts heart-shaped accent pearls added to the corners of the pink layer finish it off. I like the layout and will use it again, I'm sure.

Thanks for checking in and taking a look!
