Have a Heart with Simon Says Stamps and 30 Day Color Challenge

Hello Delightful friends and family!
I've been a coloring fool the last three days! Yay! Love it!  Tonight I finished a Valentine card for my dear hubby.  A week ahead of time, I can't believe it!  I didn't get too fancy with it but it was a lot of fun designing.
Here is my card:

I've watercolored this with an inexpensive watercolor set (Simply Art watercolor cakes) and the paper is Canson 140lb cold press. The hearts were created by using a heart die from the Roses For You set (Simon Says Stamp). I traced them lightly with a pencil then added water to the inside of the heart before dropping in the paint. I used two different colors of deep pink.  After it dried I stamped the coordinating heart stamp and the dots from the same set (Simon Says Stamp) and add the stitched lines which were from the WPlus9 Doodlebuds set.  All were stamped with Archival black ink. On the vellum, I've added the sentiment and heart they are from the same Simon Says Stamp set.  I popped up the inside heart with dimensional adhesive. I added Wink of Stella in clear to the sentiment and black dot but the photo doesn't pick up the glimmer.

Thanks so much for visiting!

When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.  Proverbs 11:2
