Uniko Challenge #24 Reminder

Hello friends I'm here with a reminder card for the 
current challenge over at Uniko where the theme is 

and there's an optional twist to use the photo inspiration below.
The challenge ends next Friday, 4th September at 8am BST 
so still plenty of time to play along and possibly win a prize!

More details below ....

Here's my card and again I've gone with the colours in the photo
and twisting with hearts too making it Anniversary time!
I've used the Flower Power #3 set as I think the flower heads bear an 
uncanny resemblance to those in the grass on the photo.

I started out by creating my border of hearts - also in the Flower Power set
and I was inspired by the sketch which is currently running over at 
Less is More. I then inked the flowers in Versamark ink and heat embossed
in Hero Arts clear embossing powder before water-colouring using the
Zig Clear Brush pens. To finish I heat embossed the sentiment using 
WOW Metallic silver sparkle and adhered some gems for some added interest.

Here's the photo inspiration if you fancy a twist!

It's an 'Anything Goes' Challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp
and it's Clean and Simple over at Addicted to Stamps so 
I'd like to enter my card at these challenges too
