Day 5 CPS - hugs and kisses

Here is a valentines card that I made following the Day 5 sketch from Card Positioning Systems - it is sketch #138 ...

Here is my card following the theme from AnnaBelle Stamps blog - say it with hearts ...
 
I have stamped and embossed the heart on vellum and backed it with white cardstock ...
 
There are lots of inspiration for this card - Secret Crafter #171 challenge which is 'hugs & kisses' (hence my title:), Paper Sundaes - clean and simple, Cupcake Crafts #178 challenge - pink and red, Party Time Tuesdays - valentines and Top Tip Tuesdays - valentines and I have a TIP this week - if you don't have the right rhinestone, pearl or bling to match your card - hole punch some of the patterned paper you have used or cardstock, attach it to your card and then apply glossy accents to them (or something similar) - they look like 'matching rhinestones' and to give it that 'raised effect' to make it even more like rhinestones keep adding more layers of glossy once each layer has dried and you end up with a nice little curve :)
materials - white cardstock; AnnaBelle Stamps 'Background By Design 5' and 'Lil monsters' balloon' stamps; MFT 'mini banner day alphabet' stamp set; Stampin Up purely promegranate, Versa Color orchid, VersaMark watermark inks; Vellum; white embossing powder; Heat tool; Sizzix sixxlits heart #5; Satin trim; AnnaBelle Stamps pink sprinkles.
Thanks for looking.
