Pink and Grey Valentine Card

Hello everybody,

Just a quick post of my latest creation:


I used pink patterned paper for my first layer and heavily distressed the edges. Then I added grey tone wood grain patterned paper ontop of it. Edges were distress on this layer as well...
I cut out a frame out of white and black cardstock and attached them. The black cardstock was on top. I covered it with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and white the paint was still wet I sprinkled some clear rock candy for extra shimmer..
The sentiment is from Verve "More than Love" stamp set stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink.


Here is a closeup of the handmade flowers,the sentiment and layered hearts... The flowers and hearts were inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Hearts were embossed with script embossing folder.


Here you can kinda see the shimmering frame...


One more look at the finished card...

I am entering this card into following challenges:
