Hearts all over

I've been playing around with a brand new stamp - it's an all-over heart pattern but I don't know the brand as it was sent to me by a magazine to test.  The sentiment and pearls are from my stash and as for that blue paper, my Mum bought it for me last time she came here  to visit and she's been housebound for the last 15 years so it's very, very old!

It would look good as either a background or the main feature on a card. I've got lots of ideas for this - white-on-white, stamped on parchment, used over an inky background and even cut up into border strips, but for its first outing I thought I'd make good use of those bold, clear shapes by colouring it in bold, bright colours. Incidentally, do you know it's Valentine's Day just four weeks today?

I am sharing this with
