Sweethearts

Here are the rules:

The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs.  They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website.  The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.
 

On the bottom panel of my card I used Antique Linen Distress ink directly on the Hearts and Leaves embossing plate before embossing to give a more vintage feel.  This meant that I used the debossed side of the paper.  The top panel I embossed Petite Hearts so the hearts are raised.  The border across the center is the new Queen Anne's Lace.  After die cutting the Celtic Heart, I debossed the center fall out the same way I did the bottom panel.  I popped it up on the card for some dimension.  Using Miniature Rose, Medium Rose and Large Rose to create my rose, I then added a bit of Carmel Creative Inspirations Paint to give it a warm tint and more sparkle.  I was going for a very vintage mono-chromatic look.  I think it is kind of classy!  Finished size is 5.5" square.

Remember, you MUST use a Cheery Lynn Designs die to enter this challenge.
