Stamp N Plus Heart card

I think this will be my last heart/love/Valentine's Day card until next year. My card features a heart stamp by Stamp N Plus which you can find HERE. The heart is stamped onto watercolor paper by Strathmore using Hero Arts black ink. Then I colored it in with powdered chalks mixed with paint using a paint brush to apply the mixture onto the image. The powdered chalks are by Stamp N plus and the colors are simply Red and Lime with a link to the paint HERE.   

The red cardstock for my card is by Stampin Up and the embossing folder is by Darice. I matted the front panel onto black cardstock by Recollections. The sentiment sticker is by Three Bugs in a Rug. It's a pretty simple one today. I wanted to add more but everything I tried looked forced and not natural. So it may not be one of my best cards but if I only showed my best I wouldn't have very many to show, well in my opinion. 

Thanks for looking.
