Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge--Rainbow Heart

January-2015-PTI-Blog-Hop
I do love the PTI Blog Hops & I love making Valentines.  When I saw the inspiration (so nice they give it to us a week ahead!) I was immediately drawn to the heart made of pencils.  Thought I could use Watercolor Wonder with my Memory Box heart die & it worked! I cut the heart out of copy paper & then stamped over the negative with these PTI inks: Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold & Summer Sunrise.  My sweet friend, Martha, sent me the Wonderful Words: Love die cut & I brushed it with Wink of Stella.  Hadn't done any paper piercing in a long time--gives a neat effect, I think.  The sentiment is from Counting My Blessings & is mounted with foam tape.  The panel is also popped up & 3 white sequins provide the embellishment.  
Have to say, I love how this turned out--may have to make a few more! I'm also entering the challenges at SSS Wednesday & Time Out. Enjoy the hop--we're off to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather if the fog lifts, but I'll be back later with another card.
