Weekly Challenge #5 - Sweethearts

This week we are all about Sweethearts.  It's just about Valentine's Day and everyone's looking for the great gift idea for that special someone.  The challenge for you is to create something special for your Sweetheart.   
  
To make my card, I started off cutting out a large heart (with an A Muse Studio die) and using masking tape to attach the outline/negative to a white piece of cardstock.  I then used that as the template for making a heart of hearts.
   
    
I started with a few of the largest hearts, to make sure there would be room for them.   Then I filled in with smaller and smaller hearts.  I alternated colors and made sure I got as much of the available area inside the heart template filled.   And there we have it, a "heart of hearts".  Heart stamps are from the Paper Smooches "Sweet Hearts" stamp set.  Inks include Rhubarb Stalk, Lady Bug, and Angel Pink dye inks from Memento by Tsukineko.  Heart embellishments from Doodlebug.

Because this week is an ANYTHING GOES week at Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, I'm submitting this card for that, too! 
      
You can link your project HERE for your chance to win.  Hope you'll join us and create something sweet for your sweetheart!   
  
Happy Stamping!

Like how you used the masking tape to make the heart-shape of hearts. Not tried that before.
