Another card for JUGS Color Challenge 120

Am back with my second card for Just Us Girls Color Challenge #120. Here's their pallette:

Have always wanted to do a tic-tac-toe kind of card :)

This is my first time to emboss on an actual card.  My sister has gifted me with a heat tool for Christmas.  Have been hesitant to purchase one because (1) it's a heating tool and i've got a couple of very curious little boys around, (2) i don't have a crafting room/area of my own where i could peacefully leave the heat tool, and (3) it intimidates me because i don't know how to use it.  Ok, several things/techniques "intimidate" me in crafting, but i find that it is only so until i use it, hands-on. From then on, it's experiment time!

And so...have placed the heart stamps on the block, stamped with Versamark, poured embossing powder, turned on the heat tool and...Yaaay!...a card! :)  i think i need more practice to know when the heat is enough and so on. Yes, experiment time :)

Am glad it turned pretty and fun-looking.

Color breakdown:
Red - card base, images;
Pink - twine;
White - image panel.

Supplies:  Cardstock - Bazzill, AC; stamps - Papertrey Ink "Heart Prints;" embossing ink - Versamark; embossing powder - AC Zing; twine - My Mind's Eye; bling - Queen&Co.; adhesive - Helmar.

Thank you for stopping by!

Lovely card with a cute idea. You liined all the images up perfectly and your first embossing turned out great. If you're new to embossing, you may want to get an Embossing Buddy. It's a little pillow of powder that you swipe on your paper first. Then the little specks do not stick where you don't want them to.
