"A little extra" for Tsunami Rose

Hi guys..
  Another "Little Extra" post for
Tsunami Rose
This one is another "little extra" that I've jumped at the chance of making.

"Little Extra", is basicly a series of projects I have agreed (with a HUGE smile on my face) to make for Daisy, aka Tsunami Rose.

My posts will be different from the rest of the DT, as Im using different materials, and Im not following the challenge theme, yet I will keep my post at the usual time, on wednesdays.
But dont forget, you can join the weekly challenge HERE..
So with no further ado, this is what I've made for this week.
For this weeks project, I've used the backing paper called "Tearaway Rose"

 For this card I decided to have a play with my Grand Calibour. My hubby bought it for me as a present, but since getting it, I havent used it all that much. I also own a Big shot, which is my baby, and I tend to use that. I do however also own a few sets of the grand nestabilities dies, and with that in mind, It was what I decided on when making this card.

 The topper I chose is also from Tsunami Rose. It comes on an embelishment sheet called
 "Ephemera Sampler 3"
I added a paper doily under my topper

 This little heart is just pure plastic.. and up close look it too.. So i decided to try a little experiment.
I covered the heart with "Versamark" glue ink, and sprinkled wwith brown embossing powder.
The experiement was really, if the heart was gonna survive the heatgun, but it worked..

I love the way this card came out. The back ground paper is a busy one, so the card itself didnt need to much added to really pull it together.

That is it from me today. I hope you like what I've made.
Thank you for stopping by & for any comments left behind.
