Thrilled.....

I am thrilled and delighted to be the Guest Designer over at The AAA CAS Challenge,
after winning their three for something challenge with this Card.........
The Challenge this fortnight is a CAS Card with One Layer 
with the Optional Twist of Love....

This is My Card....

I have used the die cut as a stencil to keep it a One Layer card.
I scraped through the stencil with several different colours of pinks of embossing paste.
Lindy Magicals have been used to colour the paste and
the small hearts have glossy accents on them.
I wanted to hi-light the large hearts further so I popped on another layer of paste 
and used my finger to get extra texture.......
Finishing off with stamping the tiny sentiment in black.

Thank you so much for the opportunity of guest designing with you for this fun challenge.
Challenges I would love to enter.....

So creative use of this die cut as a stencil. I also love the idea of adding a structural paste to get an extra dimension. A great love card, delicate and romantic.
