Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 - Day 2

One layer cards!  Eeeep! I don't find these the easiest - I tend to want to add something somewhere (or end up messing something up and having to cover it with a second layer!) But this card came together exactly the way I planned - love it when that happens!  (as Julie Ebersole would say, lots of "monkey clapping" happened!! )
I went with Jennifer McGuire's technique of using water colour pencils - didn't use them on the sentiment, but on a rainbow of hearts :)  The heart and the sentiment are from a PaperTrey Ink set called "Tremendous Treats - Valentine" - a set with cuteness galore!

Not sure what went on with my camera, but the corners of the photo went all dull on me. :(

You can see that I added some Glossy Accents to each of the hearts - just a little touch that makes a big difference, I think.
 Seeing as the challenge at Addicted to CAS this week is "Heart", I thought I might submit this card there, too :)
 I hope you are having a great day :)

  48. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?
