Round Heart

This bit of pink and glittery goodness was so much fun to make.  It all started with that circle scrap in the center.  I found it to be a perfect fit for the center of a Spellbinder Die with hearts around it. 

I cut 3 hearts from memory box's precious hearts, lopped the bows off of two of them.  I ran them through my little Xyron sticker maker and then dumped Distress Glitter in clear rock candy over them. Wow love that look.  Next I decided the bigger circle need to sparkle too.  I used some Be Creative adhesive sheet on white card, cut the die, then peeled back the liner paper from the die cut and dunked it into the glitter.  A piece of pink AC Cardstock was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder.  To cover my almost but not quite seamless joining of the three hearts, I used a glittered pink heart brad. I couldn't bear to put a sentiment on the front, so that is going on the inside.

I am entering this in a new to me challenge, the card concept. Challenge #3 is Monochromatic pink.  The style on this card is either clean and layered or classy and elegant. I'm still a bit new to the styles and haven't quite found mine yet. They have the styles defined at their blog, it makes for informative reading.

Below is a close up of the glittered bits.
Thanks for stopping by!
