I used a couple of challenges making this card. I used the colours from MFT Colour Challenge - MFTCC#62 and the layout is based on the sketch over at The Paper Players - PP#329. As I've got some polka dots on my card, I'm also submitting it to Inkspirational - INK#127 where they want to see polka dots. I used some grey design paper and card to cover the card base and covered the join with a strip of silver peeloff. I stamped the large heart in my MISTI, this was so that I could ink up the stamp a couple of times to get good coverage and depth of colour. I carefully cut it out. To make some card to match this heart I used the direct to card technique to colour a scrap of white card. I used my heart punches to punch the smaller hearts. I stamped the sentiment on the edge of two hearts, one in black and one in Versamark which was heat embossed with white powder. I used dimensional gel to attach the hearts, the smaller ones are flatter to the card, but the large one has quite a bit of dimension. I finished off by adding a grey ampersand die cut. On the inside I cut a mat layer of grey card and on the white panel stamped a sentiment and a tiny open heart.
