Embossed Hearts Valentine

Hi everyone!
Happy Valentines Day to you all!
The card I have to share with you today, is a little Valentine card!
Well it had to be today didn't it!

This was such a simple card to make & it has been bouncing around
 in my head for absolutely ages! I'm so glad to finally get it out!
I used embossed linen cardstock from Southfield Stationers for the base.

I cut two little hears from some Design Paper that I got in Lidl.
The paper was part of a book & is double sided.
It already had little embossed lines with flecks of glitter in.
I covered the hearts with some clear Versamark ink then 
embossed with clear embossing powder, using my heat gun to melt.
I would have prefered to use UTEE but I don't have any so I 
repeated the process several times until I was happy.
The swirls panel is the linen embossed cs which I originally debossed
 then decided I didn't like it so used the reverse side.

I added my sentiment, which I created on my pc, at the top.
If you're looking for a challenge to play in, the theme over at
 The Crafting Cafe this month is Embossing
Thanks for looking today.
I'm off to start my day with a visit to the dentist.
Wish me luck!
