The Stamp Man challenge- hearts. Show us some love!

Have you made your Valentine a card yet? The challenge at The Stamp Man this fortnight is Hearts, so it's the perfect excuse to spread a little love!
My card is made using a fabulous set from the Stamp Man called Artistic Elements. The winged heart is one of my favourites, and I decided to keep it simple and just stamp and emboss the image and the torn edge of the red card. I'm not apologising for my photography skills this time, I tried to catch the light on the embossed areas to try to show the different colours in the Moonglow embossing powders- I used Cosmic blue/mauve and it really changes colours when you move it.
The base card and the background to the main image is stamped with Tim Holtz mini stamps in Fired Brick and Barn Door. 
Now I just have to decide who to send it to.........
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show......some embossing
Papertake weekly challenge- Show some heart
Ooh La La Challenge blog- For someone special
Let's ink it up- Romance/Valentine
Allsorts- Love love love
Crafts and me- Red
Stamp Something.....for your Valentine


Ingredients:
Distress Inks in Barn Door and Fired Brick
Red ribbon and gold key
