Happy Heart's Day

I'm still using up Sizzix blooms I cut from the photo paper I colored with Alcohol Inks Cranberry & Wild Plum. Again I dry embossed them & layered them with vellum blooms.  I've had these little silver heart brads for years & aren't they cute as the flower center?  I was inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday--a challenge I hope to enter regularly this year.  The hearts panel is made with Tim Holtz stencil & Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink.  
Finally used some Washi tape on a card--2 strips of the silver/white chevrons attached to cardstock. The A Muse sentiment is one I've had for years & still love. It's stamped in Memento Grape Jelly & Stickles is added to the tiny heart. The dry embossing is by Cuttlebug & the card front stitching is by Lil' Inkers.  
My card fits several challenges so I'll join in at Dies R Us, Fusion, SSS Monday & Die Cut Divas. Thank you so much for taking time to check my card.
