Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Have a Heart

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This challenge is all about love, which is fitting because I absolutely LOVE my new heart stencil that I used for the card.  

To create the background, I made pink embossing paste with distress inks (Pickled Raspberry and Spun Sugar).  I embossed the heart stencil starting with the darkest shade of pink embossing paste at the top and ending with the lightest shade to create an ombre effect.  

I stamped the postcard on vellum and embossed in white and stamped the sentiment.  I made two small holes on the side of the vellum and used twine to attach the vellum to the background.  After coloring the bunny and umbrella I adhered them to the card with glue.  I finished the card with clear glitter on the umbrella. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day!
