With A Cherry On Top

This cute Valentine's card I have to share with you today fits the requirements for three challenges! I didn't really plan it that way, but that's how it worked out!

*The layout follows last week's Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge SC524.

*The "Cherries" inspiration photo from this weeks Cupcake Inspirations Challenge was the basis for my card theme. DRS Designs is their sponsor this week and 1 lucky winner will be picked from all the challenge participants to win a $10 store voucher for stamps at DRS Designs online catalog!!!

*Finally, the challenge this week on the DRS Designs blog is "So Shapely!" You are to use at least 2 different shapes on your project.  I went with a circle and hearts.

Both the Cherry Top Cupcake (463E) and the Sweet Valentine's Greeting (257D) are by DRS Designs.  The image was colored with Copic Markers.  The card front was embossed with a heart embossing folder and then I inked it with pink ink to make the hearts stand out. Then, I randomly added small heart die cuts to some of the embossed hearts and embellished them with a small pearl in the center.  Next, I assembled the rest of the layout as shown. The greeting banner was adhered with foam tape to pop it up for some added dimension.  Finished card size is 4.25" x 5.5."
Hope you enjoyed my card today!
Thanks for stopping by!
