Lovely lacy hearts for a friend and a few challenges

One of the nicest things is to receive a handmade card in the mail. This week I received a really special one, and it made my day, and reminded me to write some of those cards which I have been intending to send.
So created this one for a lovely friend of mine using lots of new goodies.

The lovely lacy heart has been cut twice and layered up on itself to create a bit more of a feature, and the ombre colouring effect is highlighted by matting it on the black, which wasn't what I thought I would use with the soft pinks but I like the impact, and it is strengthened - I think- by the base mat colour to match.

Of course I always add a little accent to the inside, the champagne foil and DSP are mirrored from the card front, and the lovely sentiments match perfectly from the Incredible Like You set.

 I am entering this card in a few challenges, Just Add Ink#440, adding something new, Addicted to CAS, codeword friend and a challenge I've just discovered Stamp Ink Paper, using hearts. ombre and foil

Have you got a friend who would appreciate getting one of your cards? There's bound to be someone who would love to hear from you.....

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
