So Special To Me

This card was a lot of fun to make although it took me about 3 weeks to finally finish it!!  I wanted to try using textured paste with a stencil....another technique I have seen lately but never tried.  To start I  die cut my white card panel out using a stitched rectangle from the Simon Says Bundle of Stitched Shapes.   Then I used some Deco Art textured paste over a Heidi Swapp stencil to create the batch of hearts on the panel, let it dry, then colored them with a Hot Pink Promarker.  I went over each heart again with a clear Wink of Stella marker to add shimmer.  I loved the results, but then the card front stared at me for another couple of weeks until I finally decided how to finish it & who the recipient would be! (Another secret I cannot divulge until the rightful owner opens it).  I really love this sentiment from the Hero Arts set CL582.  I wanted this to be a CAS card, but besides the hearts & sentiment, I felt like I clearly needed to add SOMETHING ELSE!...I cannot deal with a lot of wide open white spaces!!  That's when I remembered the cute Mama Elephant "In My Heart" stamp set.  I stamped & colored the little girl on another piece of white card stock, cut her out, added Wink of Stella to the little heart on her dress, then added her to the card front with foam tape.  I also added foam tape to the back of the entire panel & adhered it to the matching pink card base. I think it turned out pretty cute!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!!
