Bitten By The Bug 2--Hearts....

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
Today at Bitten By The Bug it was my friend and fellow Design Team Member--Susan's turn to pick the challenge and I think she picked very appropriately :) She chose the border and a heart from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Art Cake Cartridge. I LOVE anything on the Martha Stewart cartridges so I couldn't wait to play!
My favorite part of the Martha Stewart Cake Cartridges, which happen to be some of my FAVORITES, are the borders. I just love them, especially when welded together in the Gypsy! It is like having all of Martha's punches right there with me :) I welded the heart border onto a 5" x 5" basic square on the Gypsy to make my card front.
 To give the pink heart some texture, I stamped embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then added some Stickles in Bubblegum Pink.

A pretty simple card overall...but it gets the point across....
Happy Valentines day to my husband...
