No Man........

Today's Card.....
Update- I was lucky enough to get a Top Pick for this card at 
Stamplorations sketch and theme challenge-Thrilled...Thank you so very much x
I used a flourish stencil and black embossing paste.
Once this was dry I popped on glue and Gold Mica Flakes.
The red hearts have been stamped, fussy cut and glossy accents added to them.
I popped them onto foam.
I stamped the sentiment, which I absolutely love....
It came in the post this week and if you are lucky then I think it's the perfect sentiment x
This is not a good photo but wanted to show the glossy effect on the hearts.
The card is CAS with texture.
Crafty Hugs x
Challenges that inspired my card......
Lots of texture with the embossing paste, the gold flakes, the hearts and the glossy accents.
Stamplorations - Sketch and 3 of something
I combined the sketch and the three of something...the hearts
