To the one I Love

Hope today finds you well. It is a lovely sunny day here, best viewed from inside because it is freezing.... I really should clean my car but brrrrrrrrr and note to self perhaps white isn't the best colour for a car...! It's that cold I had to crack the ice on the chickens water,I have 16 chickens that produce the best eggs ever and they make the best cakes, anyway I digress.
Onto my challenge entries for today, and with Valentines day just round the corner I set to. I am entering into the following challenges:-
Anything Goes Challenge 59 - To the One I Love
allsorts Challenge - One or More Hearts
Studio L3 - Cracking up using distress crackle paint resist technique which can be seen here demonstrated by Tim.

There is a lot of dimension on this card. All the hearts have been cut out of chipboard with sizzix hearts die and 4 of the 6 hearts are painted with distress crackle paint, old paper, worn lipstick and fired brick and distress inked with vintage photo, aged mahogony and fired brick. I have added many embellishments, tickets and a tag (magnolia die). All is then mounted on a torn piece of corrugated card and sequin waste finished off with buttons, bakers twine and hat pins.
You can see the crackle effect better on this photo

Thanks for looking
