Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 300

wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for It's a Guy Thing Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Have a Heart

 We are using Glitter Ritz/Wink of Stella this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

For my project, I used Wink of Stella (White glitter). It's hard to see the subtle glitter on the hearts and sentiment, but the shimmer does make the card extra special and unique!

Of course, the most time I spent on making this card was the stitching with the Screen Elements with sequins and floss. I also did some silver embossing with the heart 2-3 times to get that thickness on the heart.
 
As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
