Uniko Challenge #17

Morning friends. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog today as I'm thrilled
to be posting Uniko Studio's first themed challenge of 2015


If you follow the Uniko Studio Challenges regularly 
there are a few changes this year as follows:

1. Challenges will run for 2 weeks only and will begin on the 3rd Friday of each month
2. You can use any stamps in our challenges
3. You can enter as many times as you wish and combine with any number of other challenges
Ok so here is my card and you'll see I've gone with the 'love' theme

I wanted to show you how versatile Uniko stamps are even if you don't 
own specific love or friendship sets. I've used Background Builders: Circles to add
a delicate background to my cardstock. For the hearts I heat-embossed 3 of the 
circles from the same set in WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle before die-cutting.
The sentiment 'with' is from Flower Power #5 

Other tools:
MFT Die-Namics - Blueprints 15, Stitched Rectangles
and alphabet dies (new from Santa and first outing) which means
I can head across to Darnell's NBUS Challenge again!
