This  card began with the Sweet Stamps image Priscilla Silhouette.  She is stamped with Distress Ink Pad Clear and embossed with Fantasy Ivory EP.  Die cutting Cheery Lynn's Doily Heart to Heart.  I flipped the die over to trace a black mat for it.  Priscilla is pop dotted  to the second heart using Foam Dots  There is a pop out heart that I stamped Happy Valentine's Day with Distress Ink Clear and embossed with Black Fine Detail EP .  I inked the edge of the heart with Tuexdo Black Momento Ink.  

Now for the Embossed/Embossing part of the challenge!! I embossed Craft Concepts Love Hearts on white cardstock.  Using a brayer, I inked the front of the Love Hearts with Distress Ink and embossed it with Valentine Sparkle Fine Detail EP.  You can click HERE  for a tutorial on the Embossed/Embossing Technique.  The finished size of the card is 4.50" x 6.25".

Love the heart frame for the image and sentiment, and the great Embossed Embossing with the heart die.
