Tons of Hearts

Hi there!

I've got a sweet and simple card to share with you today. I used a stamp set from the STAMPtember release from Simon Says Stamp but it's a set you haven't seen much of. It's called, Tons of Hearts and I love it because the shapes of the hearts, in my opinion, are perfect - they're big, fat and puffy. Lol!



Both the solid and outline images come in the set and there are soooo many different sizes! 

I used a few of the new inks that SSS just released too. The three I used are, Maliblue, Cobblestone and Coral Reef - love them together! Added a bit of Wink of Stella on the smaller hearts and some pearls and enamel dots were scattered here and there. I tried different ways to add a sentiment but didn't like any of them so I added one on the inside instead.

Before I go I want to remind you that the second Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge is up and running. It's a fun, Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I would love for you to come join in the fun! This week's prize is a $50.00 gift certificate to the SSS online store!
You have until
