You're sweet!

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Donna has chosen: Hearts

And here is the card I created:
This challenge is very timely as Valentine's Day is coming up upon us!  I used a LOT of hearts, even reusing the the heart cut outs from the border die cut as the shaker elements.  I created the background with the heart from the Love Stencil stamp. Then added the heart border die cuts and a strip of scrap red patterned paper.  Finished the background off with two bits of scrap lacy border die cuts that we left over from another project and were in my bits and pieces stash.  As I mentioned before, I used the heart pieces from the border die cuts as the shaker elements and saved one to embellish the sentiment panel.  I used the same patterned paper as the background to paper piece the cupcake liner. 
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Love your cupcake - especially wth chocolate icing - my favorite. Talk about using all of your pieces - you have surely done that. Nice job on this challenge.

I'm completely taken with those hearts in the background - they remind me of my Love Post stamp! Love the diagonal border and how you used the negatives for your shaker elements! Super sweet card!
