Stampers Dream January Challenge

I was really feeling under the weather this past weekend, so I fell behind on my card making. It's been nearly a week since I started this card! This is my submission for the Stampers Dream January Challenge. We were to follow the sketch shown on the right, and I only deviated a tiny bit, LOL.

I ran some Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Nestabilities Labels One die, then pierced around the edge using the next smaller die as a template. The pierced hearts were done free hand. The Kiwi Kiss pattern paper (from the Bella Rose designer series pack) and white ovals were also cut with Nestabilities dies and "popped" off the red cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The stamped image is Melinda Hugging Heart from Whiff of Joy Stamps, and was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black and heat embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. She was colored with Copic Sketch markers, and her wings were colored with a Sakura Stardust Clear Gelly Roll glitter pen, though it doesn't show up very well in the picture. She was cut out and "popped" from the oval background.

The flowers, button brads and heart key were from Michael's, but I don't remember the manufacturers. The ribbon is Stampin' Up! Old Olive ¼" Grosgrain.
