This card is for my co-worker, who can use a hug and a card full of hearts right now.   It will be entered into the Case Study Challenge, where we are being inspired by our muse Donna Mikasa.

Donna's card...I love it!

I went through my inventory of stamps and discovered that I have no large background stamps (...although there are several on my wishlist).  So, to mimic the embossing and blending of Donna's stunning card, I blended pink inks and then used a stencil with modeling creme.  The platinum creme is soooo pretty and pearly!

Thanks for taking a look!

Stamps: Mama Elephant XOXO
Inks: Hero Arts (soft grey); Tim Holtz Distress Inks (picked raspberry; spun sugar)
Stencil: Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts
Other: Viva Decor Modeling Creme (metallic platinum)
