Polka Doodles Challenge - With Hearts

Yes, it's Friday again so this means it's time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles. This week your hostess is Ruth and she would like to see your projects with hearts on so now's the perfect time to get ahead with some love themed cards.
I decided to make a simple card using just hearts as I wanted to do some stamping (no surprise there!) and chose the hearts on the Love and Cherish CD.

My colour scheme is an elegant pink and grey combination so I printed out some hearts in those colours and cut them out inside the lines because I wanted to do some dressing up.
I embossed the 2 grey hearts with the Cuttlebug Kimmy Luvs hearts folder. The smallest pink heart was inked up with VersaMark ink and embossed with crystal powder for some glitz, I then added a heart shaped jewel to this one.
The larger pink hearts were stamped with some of the flourish designs from the Daisy Doodle stamp set using VersaMark ink and embossed with silver powder.
As you can see the papers I chose co-ordinate perfectly with the colours of the hearts and the stamped flourishes. I added a pink border punched with the Martha Stewart Daisy border punch and a greeting from the same stamp set.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 13 February to get your entries in and good luck!
Have a great weekend.
