C&S Day 3 and a little explaination

This one is supposed to have been done using the same cardstock for the raised cutouts. I really didn't like that look so I changed it a bit. Cut these out on the cricut. The tiny hearts (light colored) are the centers from a double heart punch. Found a tiny clear heart stamp in my collection but it had a border around it. I decided I hadn't ever used it with the border, so I cut the border off! The background stamping was an accident and really not part of this card. I stamped my happy (heart) day stamp and it was a bit crooked. Well, there is always the saving fact that you can make a backgound from anything! So I did. I sprayed the whole thing with a perfect pearls mist and let it dry. I can't believe I chose pink for this, but after putting all those hearts on it , it was a good choice!
Now to give you some explaination. I didn't know I could write anything about my clean and simple cards. Found out quite by accident looking at other people's blogs that they did, so I guess I could.  I was dying to tell you about how I chose to do what I did on the other Clean and Simple cards. If you are interested, I am about to edit the last couple of posts with that info so it is close to the card I am talking about. That way if you want to try , you will have it together. Hugs to you all, Barb F
