love, embossed

Another one that fits too many challenges to name them all on the title *smile*

Here's the challenges I'm entering it to:

The House that Stamps Built's F812 sketch challenge  provided the sketch and also challenged us to use heat embossing. Check out the links- they're two different challenges. My stamped Stampin' Up!  heart image is heat embossed using Zing! rouge embossing powder.

The Pixie Cottage's challenge #107 was to use red on our creations.

Delightful Challenges was hosting a love themed challenge.

Creative Inspirations challenge #149 was also hosting a love themed challenge.

Simon Says had a "love is in the air" theme. Another love themed challenge.

Shopping Our Stash Weekly had a hearts, valentines and/or lace challenge for their challenge 38. I went with the hearts aspect here with my heat embossed heart and the dry embossed hearts and also this card can also be used as a Valentines.

Try it on Tuesday had a card for a true love theme.

Divas by Design had a love is in the air theme for their challenge #21.

My Mum's Craft Shop challenges had an it must be love theme.

Phew, right? Now, here's my card:
