Stampin' Up! I {Heart} Hearts and I create an Encouragement card

Ok, I know I'm supposed to be doing uni work, but as I was having a coffee break (any excuse will do) inspiration hit! I think my mojo is here for a little while, so I'm not going to turn it away :)
This card created itself, it really did! I started with a Pear Pizzazz base, layered it with a piece of Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper from the Brights stack and a piece of Regal Rose card. I stamped the sentiment from Whimsical Words (retired) in Versa Mark then heat embossed it in Black. I stamped a bunch of hearts from I {Heart} Hearts in Regal Rose, Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz, I cut them out and arranged them on the card using pop dots to add some dimension. I then wrapped a piece of Wild Wasabi stitched ribbon (retired) around the base and tied a knot. I finished it off with three rhinestones in opposing corners.
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is The Stamp Spot Sketch challenge, which is a brand new monthly challenge. The second challenge is the Play Date Cafe colour challenge, which makes me think of summer (not difficult considering the BEAUTIFUL weather we are having!)
Ok, so that's me for now... My little sister should be here soon and then it is grocery shopping for me (blergh)
Happy Stamping!
