Embossed metal heart with ribbon on a hot glue stenciled background

Created this anniversary card this morning to be sent out next week.  I used another background from my stash that was created using spray inks, hot glue stencils and photo paper.  I love this bright background and it worked nicely with the gold leafed heart which I received in a prize package a while back.  I layered a red embossed metal heart over it.   The metal heart was cut from a coloured aluminum tin using a Sizzix heart die.  When I auditioned the heart on the background it needed a bit of something so I when looking for a yellow ribbon.  I found this one in my stash and decided to create a flag instead of laying it across the front as is my usual habit.  I stitched the flag on the fold and used double sided tape to adhere it to the back of the heart and then to adhere the whole element to the card front.  I watercoloured the laser printed fussy cut greeting (CLKER) and mounted it to the card front using 3D foam tape.
I am really liking the artsy look of my cards so far this year!!
