Sweet Sunday #3

Finally! Here is my card for the 3rd Sweet Sunday sketch challenge. Would you believe there was a cow on this card at one point??? This wasn't an easy sketch for me....I guess because I have lots of little stamps and struggled with the main image. I'm adding 2 views again, in hopes that you will be able to see the shiny in at least one of them.

Anyway, I did a lot of heat embossing on the stamped images. The big heart is from an Autumn Leaves clear stamp set, the polka dot heart popped from the center is from a Hero Arts stamp, the love is Penny Black and the flourish is from another clear stamp set I own. The pattern paper is from The Paper Studio, the solid pink from Hobby Lobby, the black is linen from Archiver's and the dark pink is Stampin' Up's purely pomegranate. I used the swirls and the dots Cuttlebug embossing folders on the pink and black backgrounds respectively. I used Stampin' Up's scallop edge punch on the purely pomegranate background behind the black piece on the bottom of the card. Last, but not least, I added 3 pink gemstones on the embossed heart image for accent. I'm still not sure if I like this card or not, but at least it's done.

First last week and last this week. Where will I end up next week????
