Share handmade kindness week 2: community

For week two I made a card for my wonderful help. Without her I wouldn't be able to do the heavy household chores due to my arthritis and reuma, she's a life saver!
On holiday now, but as soon as she gets back she'll get this little card I made her.

I used the idea from Jennifer McGuire's video, I looked through all my heart stamps, found quite a few actually, but then I stumbled upon this Neat and Tangled falling hearts, background kind of stamp. So I used that.
Also Neat and Tangled for the sentiment (all my heart).
I used pigment inks for the heart stamps as I only have Distress inks or black, like Memento and StazON.
I colored the big heart with Spectrum Noir markers.
I did cut a black matte as in Jennifer's card, but I have more white space and I thought it looked too stark on mine, wonderful on Jennifer's card, awful on mine lol.
So I swiped Distress ink around the edges of the cardbase, this is a custom blend, but it's similar to Dusty Concord, just more red in there.
I covered the big heart in the sentiment with Wink of Stella and then glossy accents.
I used 2 thin strips of silver glimmer paper around the sides for a bit more brightness and shine.
