Less Is More ,,,,,,

Hi all, I am back with another card,, if you would like to see the new House Mouse Challenge card please scroll down :-)

 When I saw the theme over on the Less Is More Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do as the picture inspiration is almost exactly like the new Mosaic Heart Stencil from Simon Says Stamp 

I sprayed the reverse side of the stencil with a low tack adhesive and placed it over the base card. Then, using a dauber, I coloured with Simon's Exclusive Lipstick Red ink. I then squeegied ( yes that is a word ,, haha ) some embossing paste over the top and while it was still wet I sprinkled some red glitter over the top ,,, making a right mess in the process ,,, but the end result is worth it :-) The photo doesn't pick up all the sparkle ,,, but think 'Dorothy's shoes',,, gorgeous IRL :-) 

I made a 2nd card, but not sure if this one is OK for a one layer ? 

For this one I die cut the front and adhered some red cardstock onto the inside. I then glittered the white hearts and die cut some red ones to pop into the apertures.  When it is flat it is one layer :-) The prisma glitter is so sparkly IRL on this :-)

Thanks for looking :-)
