Simon Says Stamp Challenge with Splitcoast Stampers LOVE FEST

The host at the LOVE FEST today is Simon Says Stamp and the theme is ................

Die Crazy

I have been have a Shabby Chic mood coming on for a while - the basic card has been waiting to be embellished so time and the opportunity arose with this Love Fest at Splitcoast Stampers.  
I started by using the Impression Obsession Cling Stamp Crackle with Simon Says ink Dark Chocolate,using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Hearts in various sizes and layered them up with each other.  I wanted to use  Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes  but not just have them 'sit' there so I attached them to wire and had them floating - it does look more impressive than I managed to photograph it.
When I'd eventually decided on the embellishments this is the result.

The floating hearts - not a brilliant photo!!!

This is a fantastic shabby chic design! I just love the marble look of the background that you created with your crackle stamp. Beautifully decorated with hearts and flowers, and the color scheme is perfect for this style.
