Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I've been a busy girl and have spent two days having a huge clear out and tidy in my craft room and it looks lovely again now. Naturally of course I won't be able to find anything now but it looks nice and I am wanting to spend as much time as possible in there playing lol.

It's Wednesday which means -

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -

 I have another card today which I created for Simon Says Stamps new
release and I am featuring the beautiful new Shining Heart Die. Some of you may have already spotted this card on Instagram but the photo wasn't as clear as this one!

I die cut the Shining Heart several times to create my background using white card stock and then blended Broken China distress ink over it ensuring I inked the area around the heart a little darker than the rest of my background. I then glittered all the hearts that I had die cut and popped them back into the cut out areas.
The sentiment is from Simon's Friendship Messages stamp set and I have heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamps white embossing powder, and to finish I added a few random pearls.


Thanks for stopping by
