Romantic 30th

Hey my second post for today.

This card is for my brother in law, he is 30 soon.  My sister wanted a romantic card for him with 30 on it, just to remind him how old he is lol.  So here is what I came up with.  A really simple design as this is what she asked for.  Also as it is for a man I didn't want to glam it up too much.

This card was easy to put together, I stamped these absolutely beautiful heart stamps from Graphicus with versa ink, covered them with gold embossing powder, used a heat gun to emboss the powder then cut the hearts out.  I cut the 30 using my Cricut and the tiny hearts are a punch.  To these I added tiny gems.  The ribbon is from stash.  I just love these heart stamps.  It is a fab set, check it out here.

This card is entered for the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar: #122 Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz: #38 Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges: #56 Bling (the gold embossing and gems)
Keep it Simple: Gold Dust
Sentimental Sundays: #22 Dimension (embossing and the middle heart is on foam)

That's all for this post, I'm off to make some more cards now lol x
