Valentine's for a cause

I am sure many of you have heard that the stamping community is trying to collect 1000 valentines to send to the Children's Hospital in Detroit. I am a regular reader of Julie's blog, and this post explains how her mom regularly donates cards to the hospital, and how YOU can get involved in this campaign.

There's also an opportunity to win blog candy!
Check out these blogs for more information.

This is my first card to donate, and it also follows Lauren's Saturday sketch.

This card uses all SU product (except the dew drop), although I think all of it is probably retired. The heart and flower stamp was stamped on the same light pink paper that I used for the larger background piece, then it was embossed with clear embossing powder. The paper was sponged with Pomegranate ink (love that colour), and the embossing resisted the ink. I then traced over the heart with stickles to add some bling.

Be sure to check out all of the members of the sketch team for more amazing inspiration.
