Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Good morning! I fell in love with the image for this month's blog hop over at Papertrey Ink and couldn't wait to us it for some inspiration. I'll admit this card ended up in a completely different direction than I had originally intended for it to go, but as most of you know, sometimes that happens.
I thought about starting all over, but just did not have time for that. Instead, I chose to just go with it.

Here is the inspiration photo...


Here is the card that I came up with...

I started this by blending pink and red Distress Inks onto a piece of white cardstock. Then I heat embossed the hearts from Happy Hearts with clear embossing powder over the top. After I die cut the large scalloped heart out I went over the entire thing with black Distress Ink. I really loved the way the colorful hearts popped off of what was now a black background.

Here's a close up of embossed hearts.

For the sentiment I simply layered three 'love' die cuts together and topped it with glitter.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Stamps: Happy Hearts, Wonderful Words: Love, Shakers & Sprinkles
