CAS Mix Up February Challenge

This card is for the February CAS Mix Up Challenge.

I had a scrap of blended alcohol inks in reds and hot pinks, so I used the Impression Obsession die:  Heart Stems to cut out my bouquet.
the corrugated cardboard was covered with GOLD Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, I stamped my sentiment from PTI The Best is Yet to Be.
A little copic warm gray for the shading of the vase and some gold heart sequins finishes it off. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Heart Hugs, friends!
