Valentine in Non-traditional colors

Good morning! Just wanted to share a Valentine card I made recently with my Unity Stamps:

I saw this color combo on Pinterest and fell in LOVE with it:

Isn't it dreamy? I used Unity Stamp Companies Love you, XOXO, adore, cupid {wit and wisdom} stamp heat embossed in gold on white cardstock.

After heat embossing it, I used a paint brush and some Mister Huey's to brush in rough strokes over the embossed portion, then wiped it off the embossing. I sprayed some Smooch Spritz over the top, then added some drips in a darker shade of Heidi Swapp Color Shine, as well as some gold of the same spritzed in the corners. 

Once all that dried, I added a couple of gold sequins, some enamel dots, and some doodles with my white gel pen. Finished off by rounding a couple corners, and mounting it with foam adhesive on a soft gray cardstock base.

I am also linking this up with Shop Pumpkin Spice - Hearts Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
