ABNH: All that Glitters

Hello my crafty friends!
After a month of birthday celebration it's time to get back to our super awesome challenges over at A Blog Named Hero. Are you ready?! This one is a favorite of mine :)
What?! Stardust Stickles abound hehehehe
I started by stamping the starburst background (I can't get enough of this one lately) in versamark and heat embossing with white. I then die cut it into a heart shape and rubbed on my distress ink. I used picked raspberry, seedless preserves, and dusty concord.
I adhered the heart partially hanging off of my card base for a little more interest. The sentiment was stamped over top of the heart before I added two strips of black to 'block it in". When stamping on two different levels of paper it can be easy to get gaping. I just fill it in with a black gel pen or sharpie. Speaking of black gel pens I used one to outline my heart die and make it stand out from the white card base.
Lastly, I coated the colored parts of the heart with stardust stickles. I love how shimmery it is, so pretty!
Okay folks it's your turn :)
Head over to A Blog Named Hero to enter the challenge and possibly win

Thanks for dropping in! I can't wait to see what you create :)
