Love with Stampin' Up! heart punches

Why is it when you make a card that you're really pleased with you just can't seem to get the right light for the photograph.......  Typically it's a grey day here and I've tried several times to show the texture in this card.  It's for the sketch challenge at Less is More. I've used my crimper to follow the sketch, but I know it's not easy to see.  Hopefully I'll be able to swap in another pic when the light improves. 

 Here's a close up of the heart.  I've used Stampin' Up! small heart punch. It's such a cute little punch and my team mate Laura has fallen in love with it.  She borrowed mine recently when she started as a demo and loved using it so much said " I just had to have it and ordered my own" It's a diddy little punch that you can pop in your pencil case and add some 'love' to any project.  In whisper white and brushed gold cardstock it looks really effective.  A rhinestone adds some bling and a a stamped jewellery tag gives identity to the recipient of the sentiment. 
You can stamp on the brushed gold and silver card and here I've used basic black to send my message of congratulations from retired Cheers and Wishes.

Hope it's a brighter Monday with you.

Brilliant Zoe!
The use of your crimper to make the vertical band was inspired and your little bunch of hearts is adorable!
Thanks so much
