More yummy Hero Arts…

Yep, not one, but TWO cards made this weekend for this Hero Arts challenge.

This time, I wanted to play around with layering some background stamps.  First, I stamped the envelope pattern and then used the square brocade on top.  I wanted a bit of a worn effect on the brocade, so used a light grey color and kissed a dark charcoal over top. To finish it off, I stitched around the square with a little thread.

Last, I punched out several hearts {6 to be exact} from different patterned papers.  Layered them and stitched them to the card.  Fluffed up they look pretty cool.

I am also submitting this to the CREATE: Blog! card gallery challenge to use 6 hearts.

Have a super day.
