Crazy About You - AAA Cards

I am so crazy about You - AAA Cards Challenge!  
And I'm so happy to be starting up a new and wonderful year with 
a Valentine Challenge that's wild and - oh so sweet!
I decided to go with the Crazy About You stamp set with 
and a die cut Hello You  thinlet die layered with Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.  
A perfect card for Valentines and also lots of other occasions.

We have a two-week challenge, so there's time to join in 
with more than one card if you want.
Stamping Tips -
The Washi Sheets are fantastic for punching, cutting into strips, and using with dies.  The versatility is amazing.  I used a sheet and cut a strip out of it, layering it on the card with the other banners - one with the sentiment on it.  You can see the other layers behind the Washi.  It adds so much depth!  I also used the Washi Sheets to punch hearts - one is with the Basic Gray "grid" pattern, the other is with a polka dot Calypso Coral pattern.  

I used a stencil (Heart Decorative Mask) for the hearts as a background on my art piece, being sure to keep the sentiment at the center stage.  A sponge let me use just the right amount of ink on the stencil.

So show us what you've got - I can't wait to see and
 comment on your fabulous creations!
Thanks for stopping by ~ take some time to get inky today!!
