hey! Sweet thing

I'm entering this card in a couple of challenges this week.
Tuesday Challenge at Sassy Cheryl's - What's Love Got To Do With it?
Paper Sundaes Challenge #54 - Valentine's

I'm entering this card in the challenge using Cheryl's Precolored Image, A Big Heart.  Decorative paper is from PaperTrey Ink, cardstock is PaperTrey Ink and Stampin Up.  I added some Bling to the edges of the heart and also a couple to the heart in the image, one can never have to much Bling.  Is there such a thing!   I also used a decorative punch border from MS and embossed the background paper.  I had no idea of how I was going to create this card when I started.  I knew I wanted to use the Big Heart image and that fancy heart die from Nellie's multi frame's and things just started to fall in to place.  I thought the sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps was so cute for this image.

I just received my new Waltzingmouse Stamps in yesterdays mail, just in time for this card.  I have to say that I an not usually a fan of the clear stamps, but I think Claire has this perfected.  These are the nicest clear stamps I have ever used.  They stamp so nice, I just love them.

While I am getting long winded here, I want to thank my fellow crafters and bloggers.  Looking through all your blogs I have found so many new places to buy supplies.  PaperTrey Ink and Waltzingmouse Stamps just for starters, they both have such fine quality products and I am shouting THANK YOU for posting to your blogs what products you use.  Now for the card, I hope you enjoy it!  I enjoy your comments to my blog.
