Clearly Sentimental About You - My Favorite Things' Teaser Day Two

When I first saw this new Clearly Sentimental About You set from My Favorite Things, my thoughts immediately went to CAS because I wanted to showcase the sentiment and not hide it among a lot of layers. And you know I love me some layers. But, I am gaining appreciation for CAS in a big way, in case you hadn't noticed ;-) Since I needed something else to go along *with* the sentiment, I started looking through my stamp sets for something appropriate. This big ol' scrolly heart from Boho Blossoms seemed to be just the ticket! This would make a wonderful anniversary card, don't you think?!

I stamped the sentiment on a Kraft card base with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I stamped the heart image on bright pink card stock with black pigment ink and heat embossed with black detail embossing powder. After I cut it out, I popped it up on foam squares on a strip of black card stock with a punched border and some bright pink ribbon. A row of black buttons tied on with twine finished it off!
