Hugs & Kisses & lots of Hearts

This morning I'm here with a card to share for a few challenges and 
there's certainly plenty of excuses to keep the love and heart
stash handy at the moment in blogland!

Here's my card and I must apologise for the photo there is
just not enough daylight hours to catch a decent picture!

Card Recipe:
Impression Obsession: Heart Die
Distressed Inks: Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Peacock Feathers,
Salty Ocean and Barn Door
Clearly Besotted: Sweet Little Sentiments
Twine and gems from my stash

As soon as I saw the photo inspiration at AAA Card Challenge
I couldn't wait to join in and IRL this card is much brighter and shinier
than the photograph shows.

Using distress inks I created a border by inking around the cardbase 
along with the section behind where the die-cut heart sits.
The card base was spritzed with water and perfect pearls to add some extra interest.
Extra hearts from the die cut were inked up then smothered with Glossy Accents
After wrapping some twine around the die-cut panel I've adhered it to my card base
using 3d foam and added the extra hearts and gems.

I'd like to enter this card at the following challenges:

AAA Card Challenge
