Amusapalooza Challenge #6

Here's my entry for the most recent Amusapalooza Challenge - Heating Things Up!
Not crazy about this card at all.
Had the idea first but this is not exactly what I envisioned, hate when that happens.

Heart stamp from A muse, embossed with Black ink and then colored with prismacolor pencils and blended. The blending really helped because with the pencil alone, the color did not completely cover the heart centers, the embossing blocked the penciling. Then, I went over the pink centers with my Versamarker and embossed with sparkly embossing powder (Iridecent Ice). I added black to the scalloped edges of the hearts and the "i" and "u" with the Glaze pen, but not really crazy about the results. Also, when I went to draw the heart in the center with the Glaze pen, the glitter in the embossing powder made my heart shape look like a blob, so I had to improvise and cover my blob with that heart eyelet from Making Memories.
Black polka dot paper is from Doodlebug and found that scrap of white twill in my ribbon scrap jar, probably been in there about 4 years.
There is still time to get in on this challenge, you have until Sunday, June 10th.

I love pink, black and white together. Your card is so bright and cheery. If I didn't have a DH, I seriously would decorate AT LEAST my bathroom in these 3 colors.
