Marquee Heart Card

Today, I have a fun little card.  I knew I just had to make something using this stamp Richard gave me.  I received this stamp set from Richard Garay at the President's Reception at our Convention in Scottsdale in June.
  I love all the signs and displays that I see around town that have the marquee letters that light up.  I even bought one of the DIY Heidi Swapp letters at Michaels and made it.
Ok, so now let me tell you about the card.
The first thing I did was die cut the Journey Circle and piercing element in Black Licorice Cardstock.  I then cut strips of Journey Basics: Black and White paper pack and placed them on the card.  I then stamped the Marquee Shapes heart with Cranberry Bliss Ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then fussy cut the heart out colored the "light" holes with a Q-tip and Lemon Drop Ink.
To make the dots look like light bulbs, I then dropped a drop of Journey Glaze on each circle.  When dry, it gave the feel of little bulbs.
To finish the card, added a few Journey Sequins-Special Celebrations to the card. Enjoy!
