Challenge #71 - Bearlymine Designs "Hearts Galore" Challenge

Good Morning Crafters,  I hope your beginning to recover from all that snow we've had, we had about 10inches in the end, and Im hoping it wont belong now before its all gone and we are back to normal again, Ive got to be honest I prefer the rain any day to the disruption that the snow provokes in this neck of the woods.
Anyway back to this weeks Challenge over on Bearlymine Designs and because we are creeping very quickly to Valentines day we are having a "Hearts Galore" Challenge and weve been lucky to get two new sponsors for this one, firstly "Alota Rubber Stamps":-

and they are offering a fabulous prize of

 And our second sponsor is "Noor Designs" 

 And they are offering a prize of 

Wow two fabulous prizes of on offer, what I would give to receive at least one of them, anyway here is my card for the Challenge.
For my card I have used a Heartfelt Stamp and the corresponding set of Dies, the stamped image was coloured with my copics and then cut our with a heart die, I then mounted it onto a piece of heart diecut. The sentiment is one I found on the internet and I have used my computer to write it out and then mounted it also onto a piece of red card, because the original was to big for the space I have.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the beautiful papers I have used are from Donna's Bearlymine "Love Dreams" digi paper set and you will find them here, the first a beautiful flourish paper with hearts on and the second is a square of paper which has a red background and lots of hearts on it, this I have used a heart border and corner punches from Martha Stewart, and then laid in the middle of the first mount.
I then wrapped a organza ribbon around the card and laid my mounted image towards the right, over the top I have used two of the die cuts that I cut out of red card, these were all created with the Heartfelt Die set, and the sentiment was placed at the bottom on the right.
And to finish of I have use two heart gems at the top and a further heart die cut at the bottom. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I hope that you will then want to take part in this weeks "Hearts Galore" Challenge.
