Antique Hearts for The Paper Players

Yesterday, I set out to create a clean and simple valentine card because I wanted to enter The Paper Players' Challenge this week!

I had this idea to layer an array of punched hearts with a sentiment and only two layers behind. So far, so good! Then I got out my new Timeless Textures stamp set. BIG MISTAKE! I started playing with the textures and, well....I couldn't make myself stop. So, although I really like the result, it is definitely NOT clean and simple. Uh, sorry! I think maybe I will enter it anyway.

This is also the card for which I will have a step-by-step photo tutorial, which will be free for every one who subscribes to my newsletter this month, so I'm not going to give you the recipe today. Simply fill in the subscription form below to sign up for the newsletter, and hence the tutorial. There is an understanding that you may unsubscribe at any time, and that I won't flood your inbox with emails. Usually, unless there's a big sale, you will only get one newsletter a month from me.
