My heart felt gratitude

this card presents a heartfelt gratitude to a friend... since i love working with embossing powders i designed the background with 2 different colors... the heart was done by coloring with 3 shades of pink colored pencils which adds a different distress look... then stamped with swirls. then affixed it to the card, cut card in to heart shape... using embossing powders spread it across the card stock, using a heat tool heat the powders until melted. to finish up add the ribbons and a safety pin.
