Freshly made sketches Challenge #178

 This is the first time I take part in a challenge from Freshly made sketches.
Instead of a circle I used a diecut heart that I distressed with various blue and green Distress inks and splatters of shimmer spray.
I initially started with a circle diecut like the sketch, infact I made 3 versions...didn't like any of them.
Because my Heart is so wide I didn't make a matte.
My banner is in front, like you see with tattoos.
Added a few matching sequins to help the eye travel across the card.
The sentiment and banner diecut are from Simon Says Stamp "tilted banner sayings".
