Sparkle Glitter And Shine!

Today's Challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenge is:
Sparkle, Glitter, & Bling 
This is my first challenge on the design team!
I am quite excited.  Come join us so we can leave you some love!
I was not intending on doing hearts for this card at all.
I had a completely different theme in mind, but I could
not get it to work at all. Then I saw this heart on 
Create With TLC and the rest is history!
It comes in two shades of pink!  Very fun to bling up!
It is not a Valentines card, I actually made it for my 
Aunt.  It has been 2 months since my Grandmother
died, (Her Mother) So I thought it would be a good
time to send a card to know I am thinking about her.

There is sparkle and pearls on the image as well as the card
 Took a picture without flash to show the yummy sparkle!
I printed two digis and layered them using pop dots.
I cut out the heart on the top layer (In the center) 
and stamped my sentiment on the bottom layer.
The card was punched with MS Double Arches

 This is the inside.  Bottom

I loved this color Inspiration so much, this 
is my 2nd card for Off The Wall Craftiness This Week.
