Penny Black Saturday #184!

Good morning! Yey it's the weekend!! And a lovely one for me as we're off to Rye for a night for our wedding anniversary, staying in a cosy inn with a big fireplace and some wine - bliss!
But before I head off, here's my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, thanks sooo much to everyone who entered last week, it was so nice seeing how my card had inspired people in different ways! This weeks theme is nice and easy - Anything Goes! Simple!
This weeks prize is from our regular sponsor 1-2-3 Stitch with a $20 voucher to their online store!
Considering the easy theme, I really struggled with this card, I think I need to be told what to do a bit more! But then this stamp just arrived all by itself in the post (!) so I made a simple little card with it! I've selectively glittered some of the hearts and made one of them red to pop it out a little. Also, I keep seeing negative die cutting on cards and think it looks fab so I tried that too! I hope you like it! Have a great weekend!

Here's the challenges I'm entering:
Sweet Stampin Challenge - All that glitters
Papertake - Die cuts
Case Study - this card
Penny Black @ Allsorts - Love & Hearts
