Hello Handsome

When I found this card on I'm in Haven, I absolutely loved it.  The ombre effect of the hearts was delightful.  I knew I just had to make my own version, yet again, with all the things I have I didn't have the die or the stamp set she used.  But I do have the capacity to do almost anything with my Cameo.  So I created the falling hearts pattern in the Cameo by first creating an entire sheet of hearts to fit on the page, then randomly deleting hearts until I had a sheet that looked good to me.  I then cut it out and cut three colors to back it with.  Then I pulled out my new Hero Arts stamp set that I picked up at Michaels a couple of weeks back.  I loved the stamp in it that says "Hello Handsome" because I say that to my dear hubby all the time.  So that was, of course, the perfect stamp for the outside of this card, with "I miss you" on the inside.  I love challenging myself to recreate cards when I don't have exactly the supplies of the original and I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out.
