We're featuring these NEW designs with this week's theme...
Anything Goes
For my card today, I am using the new and beautiful Springtime Doodle Clear Stamp, which is one of the first SweetStamps clear stamp set!!  I just love the doodling.  I really love zentangle art and this image reminds me a lot of that. 
I wanted to create a chalkboard look for this card.  So I layered the image and trimmed around it; twice. 
The layering really makes the image pop off the embossed background.  I also rubbed a little white pigment ink around the edges, to further accentuate the hearts. 
I stamped one of on my favorite sentiment stamps and adhered it on parchment paper, leaving a half inch border around it.  I finished the card by adding gingham ribbon and 3D enamel.
