Totallly Gorjuss hearts

This card is for Net's sketch for Totally Gorjuss 62:

The background is vellum, hence the doodlebug brads in the corners (the vellum was stuck underneath where the main panel would go) - for I did it challenge 37 which is asking us to use vellum.

The brads are good for:

Kort o mania 31: use a charm or metal
Top tip Tuesday 16: metal Mickey
Stamp insanity 41: hardcore hardware
Paper cutz 73: metal

I used a Penny Black stamp that I received for Christmas (I was so fortunate to have so many new stamps) called 'brimming with love', coloured with copics, so I'm entering this into Penny Black 133: new beginnings (using a new stamp) and Penny Black at Allsorts January challenge: all you need is love.

The lovely strip across the bottom is from East of India 'hearts & leaves' paper chain (I bought a pack of these ages ago from John Lewis and occasionally use one - love them).

There are still quite a lot of challenges around asking for new things to be used, so, as I used another new stamp, I'm linking for:

Created by hand: in with the new
Rainbow lady 134: it's all new to me
Paper issues: new
Pollycraft 75: new things
Creative inspirations 50: use something new
Creative cottage 30: something new - new stash
Moving along with the times 80: ring out the old, ring in the new (the old stash is the vellum and the East of India paper chain strip)
My partner in crime 17: something new
Crafty purple frog: new goodies
Our daily bread 43: something new, something old (as above)

There are a few challenges around atm that feature love or hearts (yes, I suppose we are approaching Valentine's Day soon), so I'm linking for:

Ann's creative nook 199
: got hearts?
Squigglefly 80: put your hearts into it - I bought the 'I {heart} you digi from Squigglefly
Woodware 9: hearts
One stitch at a time 44: love & Valentine
Lexi 31: say it with love
Bunny Zoe 8: love is in the air

It's also for:

Crazy challenge 49: animals
CES 18: all creatures great and small
Papertake: anything goes
Creative card world new card challenge: anything goes
Fab n funky 54: anything goes
Craft your days away 11: anything goes
Let's ink it up 8: anything goes
