Sending You Strength

Hello!  Here is my card for the Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  The theme is Young at Heart and can be interpreted in any way that inspires!  I decided to go the "heart route" and have lots of hearts on my card.

My background was done by repeatedly stamping the "always thinking of you" circle stamp with embossing ink using my Misti.  I heat embossed each circle with white embossing powder.  Next, I used 3 different distress inks for a blended, colorful background.  The sentiment was stamped on orange cardstock with black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a little more clarity. For the finishing touch, a glittery heart and some Hero Arts gemstones.

Supplies Used:
Very Special (Simon Says Stamp)
Essential Sentiments (My Favorite Things)
Large Heart Set (Simon Says Stamp)
Distress Inks: Fossilized Amber, Ripe Persimmon & Picked Raspberry
Black ink (VersaFine Onyx Black)
Neenah Solar White 80 & 110 lb.
Silver Sparkle Cardstock (My Favorite Things)
Colored Cardstock (Hobby Lobby)
Clear Embossing Powder (Hero Arts)
Gemstones (Hero Arts)
Glossy Accents
