Red Heart Challenge

I had this set of stamps Together from Hero Arts (see here) and I haven't used it once yet...I thought the heart stamp is perfect for Carrdvarks Red Heart Challenge. I also got the inspiration from Etsy's  Challenge #71( here).
 
Amethyst Soaps's Sweethearts soaps are gorgeous! Can you imagine using them ? Here's my card from the inspiration.

Here's a close up of the heart. Crackle Paint and Glitter work wonders!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a heart healthy day. I've got to get on that treadmill now :)

Another great card Virginia. I love it and it is neat how you got your inspiration for making this card. The soap is too pretty to use. I never thought of using crackle paint and glitter together. Neat idea. Hugs to you.
