A Card for Die Cut Challenge - "No Colouring plus Heart"

Good Morning Ladies well only one more day and I will be on my way to the NEC I carnt wait to go and see what lovely goodies I can get my naughty little mitts on, will let you know how I got on, on Friday. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Die Cut Challenge "No Colouring plus Heart" and Ive used this lovely image from Elusive Images and this was stamped on white card and cut out by hand, the sentiment is another from the same set and this was also stamped onto white card and cut out with my rotatrim.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of white pearlescent card, I then used some of the same white card to stamp hearts and leaf sprays on with versafine ink and then with some white embossing powder on top, I also used the heart punch for the corners. On top of this I have put a strip of the same white pearlescent card across the middle but I did put it through my cuttlebug with a heart embossing folder, then used the same heart punch along the two edges.
The heart die cut is a new one from Nestabilities and on top of this I have mounted my cut out stamped heart with some silicone glue to give it some shape, and my sentiment was stuck at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used two heart gems to cover a mishap I had with the punch.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

First Shirley, Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. I read your profile...It is funny! But I saw "attempt" at cards...omgoodness. Your cards are absolutely gorgeous nannieflash (which is hysterical) -my daughter in law has decided Hott-Gamma...I like Nannieflash!!! Your work is original, the colors are sensational, I love how you position your pics off centre *wonderful surprises and out of the box* and personally, from one persons opinion, I think you need to change "attempt at making cards"! lol. I love your humility and your picture too. You look gorgeous and very down to earth. A pleasure to meet you. LOVING GOD, Samara
