Love is in The Air..

Today's card...
Thank you so much for the shout out at City Crafters for my card x
I started by roughly tearing a hole in a piece of paper to use as a mask. 
The text was then stamped into the hole to give me a rough edge.
The ink pen was stamped over it, embossed and the sentiment added.
I wanted it to look like one collage stamp.

The cute envelope was die cut.
The little hearts where cut from left overs, from a previous card 
using the foam marbling technique.
I finished with a little doodling, splats and some glossy accents.
After splatting I thought it looked sort of like a heart 
so helped it along by adding white splats!

City Crafter Challenge this week is S.W.A.L.K...
Use an envelope or letter....
I of course read it wrong and put on SWAK....
As the challenge was my starting point and inspiration for today's card 
I am hoping you will chuckle at this? x

I would also like to link my card up to
The Paper Players - Will You Be My Valentine? -Inspiration from the photo
The Card Concept - Love and Romance - Inspiration to use Pink Hearts
I think my card would be classified as CAS it has open space and limited layers
but may tip over to Clean and Layered because of the coloured hearts and accents
Happy Little Stampers - Anything goes with dies

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it.
