Hi everyone!  I have a card for you today using 3 stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps fabulous January release.  This is also my 3rd entry into the current sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch! #104 (yep, I love this sketch, lol!).  The fact that this challenge was posted on 18th December and runs until tomorrow was a total blessing, as I was able to make this card before I got really sick! This card also fits the current challenge 205 at Less is More, which is a colour challenge of black, metallic + one.  I used gold as my "metallic" and pink as my "+one".

First, I stamped the heart banner from Cake Day 3 times onto a 105mm wide piece of black cardstock, then I stamped the heart balloon from Cake Day onto pink cardstock using Versamark ink. I heat embossed both with gold EP then fussy cut them out (trimming the heart banner piece to 105x21mm). I trimmed a 105x26mm piece of pink cardstock and temporarily fixed it to the bottom edge of a 105x148mm piece of black cardstock using washi tape to help me with the placement of the sentiment.  I then stamped the "YOU" from the "eye adore you" sentiment from Oogles in Versamark ink just above it.  I stamped the "VE" from the LOVE sentiment from Bubbly, placed the heart balloon where the "O would go, and then stamped the "L".  I removed the pink piece of cardstock and then heat embossed the sentiment in gold EP.  Then it was just a case of assembling the card, popping the heart balloon up using foam pads and adding some white enamel accents.
