Love Red Hearts

I could use hearts in my crafting all year long but of course with Valentines Day coming up that is the natural time to use them.  
 I hadn't used my Lil' Inker heart dies yet so this was the perfect time.  I wanted to add some interest to the white background so I used white embossing paste and a dot stencil.  The die cut words are a die set from Simon Says Stamp.  
 This angle shows off the embossed dots and the great accents with the heart dies.  This set includes several sizes of hearts and it also adds the stitching detail.  I just kept cutting hearts and then embedded them.  The striped heart is created by covering the paper first with strips of washi tape.  The red is glitter paper.  
Here is The Card Concept challenge that was my inspiration.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
