Heartfelt Wishes

A one layer card with a heart or hearts is the order of the day at Less Is More this week, and after making brown cards for last couple of weeks I thought I'd go pretty this time,so here is my card.
The swirly heart is a Chocolate Baroque stamp and I stamped it with
Brilliance ink pad Twilight, ( a three colour pad ) onto a white pearlecsent card. I then stamped the boating couple on top of the heart with Memento Paris Dusk ink. This is a small  Clarity stamp that I've had for ages and has been used often. I stamped the the Crafty Individuals sentiment below the main image with blue end of the Brilliance ink pad. I added some dots with white liquid pearls around the heart and sprinkled them with some crystal ultra fine glitter to add a bit of bling.
Thank you for taking a look, I appreciate your comments.


  1. This is a very pretty card Jean. The boat stamp fits perfectly with the heart. I am never very pleased with the image when I stamp onto pearlescent card, but you seem to managed it just fine. I do like the 'touch of bling' too.

  3. This is lovely Jean and I love the twinkly bits surrounding the heart!
    I believe I have this stamp too although it hasn't seen ink yet... maybe now is the time!
    Thanks so much
