Stampin' Up! I {Heart} Hearts and I make a fun Hello! Card

I love cards to send out a quick hello, I'm thinking about you today... So, last night when I sat down to craft (instead of sleeping) I made this one
I have used a Marina Mist card base (not a colour I use very often!) and layered it with some Crumbcake (Kraft) and some patterned paper that has been in my stash for ever. I then stamped some hearts from I {Heart} Hearts in Marina Mist, Crumbcake and Sahara Sand, cut them out, and layered them on the patterned paper. I added some punchie hearts to fill. The sentiment is a new one I just received in the mail, and is a Hero Arts one. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Freshly Made Sketches weekly sketch, which actually had me baffled for some time... The second challenge is the Play Date Cafe colour challenge, oh I liked this one :) and lastly, the Simon Says Stamp free for all, anything goes. 
Thanks for dropping by! 
You may have noticed, I've added a link to my etsy shop on the right, so if anything catches your eye, just pop over and have a look :) 
Happy Stamping!
