you are awesome!

i made this super fun card last night! well, at least i think it's super fun! it's not exactly my usual style, but i'm still digging it! :)
i was completly excited to play along with the most recent challenge at the runway inspired challenge blog! LOVE that inspiration photo! 

the colors are so fun! and i love all of that white space! :)

so here's my card! (i tried to go with a minimalist, bokeh feel...what do you think?)

i feel i almost got it! lol!
first i colored some vellum with two different shades of reds, teals and yellow copic markeres. then i stamped the super adorable heart image from the new you + me stamp set from neat and tangled! (the sentiment is from that set also. LOOOOOOOVE the sentiments on this stamp set, by the way! i love the font, and the builiding your own sentiment capabilities and everything!! this is an awesome stamp set!) 

each heart was cut out and layered on top of a white embossing paste background of falling stars. then the sentiment was also stamped on a strip of vellum! and then the whole white panel was wonk-i-fied! read: turned topsy-turvy! :) and also popped up for dimension. :)

so that's it! simple, but fun, right? and maybe a little bokeh...? i though the overlapping vellum hearts might lend to that. i tried! :)
