Sprinkled Expression/Fashionable Hearts Embosslits

How cute is this card and it was inspired by the sketch over at Stamping 411.  You must check out their sketches as they are fabulous!  I try to play as often as possible and since this was a rather simple sketch and I am still have some back problems I thought,"I'll just whip it up right quick."  Is anything ever quick when you actually sit down to work on a card or scrapbook page. I don't think so! lol  Anyway, it was actually fairly simple to do and if I would have stopped with the outside would have been simpler.  But I have to put the insides together.  Actually used 4 stamps in putting this total card together.  Even though I am using hearts, this would be a great card for any friend, your mom or husband anytime of year.  That is why I like it so much.

Here is a side view of the card!

and of course an up close shot of the dimension on the front as I popped everything up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

And as always, you cannot forget to do the inside of the card, which is where the other stamps come into play!

Actually the top of the inside was a last minute decision once I decided to send this to my mom!  I knew she would love this and I wanted it centered someway and all of a sudden my most favorite item of all came into play on this card.  The top note die!  I use it so much and for so many things!  Did it not frame the top of the card perfectly.
