you melt my heart...

 Hello!  Hope you are having a great week.   It is trying to snow here in my corner of the world.   Fingers crossed that we won't get alot of it.   Since it is pretty darn cold outside so that is a good reason to stay inside and make cards!   I have managed to make four cards!  I will be sharing three of them toward the end of the month.   The card I'm sharing now is for Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches.  I just can't help it... I love combining those two challenges, lol!   There is absolutely no stamping on this card.  Everything was done with my Glimmer hot foil system from Spellbinders and hot foil plates from the Spellbinders January and February Glimmer kits.    I foiled the heart and sentiment using black foil.  Both were then die cut with the matching heart die and a sentiment strip die.  Those dies are from the January Glimmer kit.   To add a little bit more interest to the card I used the largest die from the February kit along with the foil that came with the kit to Glimmer the border around the perimeter.   I love how the foiling around the edge of the rectangle looks sort of pink even though it isn't!  The rectangle was die cut with the largest Spellbinders Essentials die.  A strip of pink cardstock was die cut with the same die I used to die cut the sentiment.  I then layered up everything up on the panel and then added a few little pink sequins.
