Piggy Bath Valentine

Good morning! This week's challenge at 2 Sisters is EMBOSSING.  We are being sponsored by two amazing companies.

The image I used is called Piggy Bath and is from Meljen's Designs. For the embossing on my card I embossed the white back ground using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (dots).  The red heart was cut and embossed using a Spellbinders scallop heart nestablilities die.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils and added some glitter to the hearts. I added some twine, a pink button and 3 berry red pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
