Confetti Garland Valentine

Happy Sunday all! I have another Valentine's Day card to share today. Betsy Veldman created a Make It Monday video on how to add a confetti garland to your project - you can see it here. The challenge at Less is More this week is 'Little Ones' - which can be babies, children or small elements on your card. I chose to go with small elements - the small hearts in my garland. My card design was inspired by this week's sketch at CAS(E) the Sketch!

I had a difficult time photographing this card, we have a winter storm coming later today and there is no sun. I created the subtle striped background by masking with post-it notes, applying Versa Mark and clear embossing powder. The center heart and small hearts in my garland were leftover from last week's card making using Scotch brand clear glue and alcohol ink. The picture doesn't do them justice but these hearts are really colourful and shiny.
