Heart Happy

Happy Monday, Fresh Squeezed friends!  It's Virginia here!  I absolutely love the sentiment "you make my heart happy" from When Hearts Collide.  It prompted me to create this happy card.  I combined all my favorite things for card making - gold embossing, water coloring, paint splatter, gold strings and sequins!

I started out embossing the heart in white and used a water color pen and applied distress inks. I also gold-embossed the edges of the water-color paper and flicked some paint to make the splatters.  The gold strings and sequin are the final touches! I used only one image from this set...can you imagine the possibilities from the entire set?
