This is my take on the challenge using Hero Arts stamp sets and dies.
I started with die cutting some masking paper using the dog die from Cute Baby Animals Stamp and Cut from Hero Arts. I adhered these masking paper die cuts randomly on a white cardstock panel making sure I burnish and smoothen the edges. Then I sponged Tumbled Glass distress ink over the entire cardstock panel. Once the distress ink was dry, I removed all the masking paper die cuts. This left me with dog shaped spots on which I stamped the dog image also from the Cute Baby Animals stamp and cut from Hero Arts. I used versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp the dog images. Black ink gave me a nice contrast against the blue. I filled in the gaps by stamping the sentiment "you" and the heart shape also from the same stamp set. With the dog images, I was on the fence on whether to colour or nor to colour. I ended up colouring not the entire image but certain bits of it with neutral colours.
For the focal point, I die cut three "Happy" from Happy stamp and cut from Hero Arts. I stacked and glued them. I stamped the smaller sentiment from the same stamp set on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed fish tail ends. I adhered the sentiments on a vellum circle which is framed with a black circular frame. Finally, embellishing with Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh brought the card together.
So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
