With the darker days I'm still not getting the light right on my card so for that I apologise. I was really lucky to get my hands on the Stacked Hearts from Simon Says Stamp because it flew off the shelves but its on reserve at the moment. I added some of the hearts back to add some interest has I was using the die has my background.

I've used the Simon Says Stamps Bundle of Stitched Shapes for the main card and for the tag. To give more interest I also used Simon says Stamp Circle Loops and Simon Says Stamp thanks die.

I was quite upset that I seemed to have lost the stitched heart from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes it wouldn't happen today has I have them on a magnetic sheet so I used the inside of the plain heart from Simon Says Stamp Small Heart Doily set.

I needed some more interest so I stamped with Simon Says Stamp Audrey inkpad with the Diagonal Stripes Back Stamp from Simon Says Stamp. Then discovered I had used all my Audrey cardstock well it is a favourite of mine. So for contrast and so the stamped background didn't end up in the bin I used Surf Blue instead.

I love these Stacked Hearts and they look great with a few randomly replaced and the fishtail banner with the circle and heart and then the sentiment on top together with the stripes you have made for the background make this a beautiful card. I love the colours too Debby. x
