Doodle That Heart

There are so many things that I like about Paula's card which was the inspiration for my card.  I like the clean and simple layout, the layer of embossed paper on top of the same colour.  I also like the white behind the scalloped green.  I think this is the way the stamp is so I decided to recreate the look with paper. 

I don't own that stamp set, so I created my version using a different stamp set.  Once again my trusty Cricut came in handy to create the scallop circles and the circle.  It is so nice to be able to make whatever size I wish!  It allowed me to create the same look that Paula achieved with a stamp.  I like how my colouring turned out on the heart.  I used some marker ink scribbled on a plastic lid and then picked up and coloured with my blender pen. 

I was going to keep my card just like Paula's, but the more I looked at mine, the more I felt like it was missing something.  I decided to add the "ribbon" of stamped heats.
