PTI Anniversary trading card

Hello everyone,


I'm still playing along with PTI Anniversary festivities and today we were asked to create a 3x4 inch flat trading card. I've never made one of these before but I came up with this one

I took a 3x4 piece of autumn rose card and stamped a heart prints stamp in scarlet jewel ink. I then masked this off and stamped with the Impression Obsession scratches background stamp in versamark ink. I removed the mask and embossed the card with a Sizzix texture plate, before swiping the edges with white ink. I cut a double ended banner and added the heat embossed sentiments, before finishing it off with a few little hearts.  Not my usual style, but I quite enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone. 

I'd like to enter this into the 2 Sisters challenge which is to use embossing, and the Addicted to CAS challenge where the codeword is LOVE.

Thanks for stopping by.
