High Hopes Challenge #15

Hi everyone;
I hope you all had a great start to your week. Its still freezing here, but supposed to warm up by the end of the week. Sounds like I give a weather report everyday, eh!...lol.

Anyway this is my card for the High Hopes Challenge #15. The challenge is "Hearts". I don't have any HH Valentine stamps, which by the way are fabulous, so I used adorable Albert.

I embossed the image with black and colored him with Tombows. I stamped 2 images and cut out and layered one. I punched a little heart and covered it with stickles. I cut a tiny slit beside his hand and glued the heart into it. I wanted it to look like he is holding it...but it looks more like he is wearing it. lol. I painted 2 wooden hearts for the sentiment. I used a piece of mulberry paper behind the dp. I added some wire curls to the bow and some flower gems inside the hearts. I also added some stickles. The bottom border is done with a martha stewart punch.
I hope you like it.

Thanks so much for stopping by....
