Artful INKables Think Ink Tuesday Challenge - CAS

This week's challenge at the Artful INKables blog was issued by the fabulous Emily and she has asked us to do a CAS card - Clean and Simple. Well, I have a real hard time with this type of card because all I want to keep doing is to ADD ONE MORE THING!!! LOL!! This is a CAS for me, so I hope it counts!
I started with this newer set from Artful INKables called Creature Comforts. These are two otters that are entwined to form the shape of a heart, so I cut and embossed them with one, colored them with copic markers, and sponged the edges with red ink. I just picked up this Martha Stewart heart border punch from Michael's last week and was so happy to have finally found it without having to pay an arm and a leg for it on Ebay! So I had to use it! I also embossed the white piece with the Swiss Dots folder. (Too much for a CAS? I told you I couldn't help myself!) There is a cute stamp that comes with this set that says "I love you like no otter", but it didn't fit on my card, so I'll stamp that on the inside. This "Happy Valentine's Day' stamp is part of the set, and it worked with my layout. I, of course, had to add the bling hearts and star dust stickles because sparkle is my addiction on cards! I think I need to join a help group.

I hope you are safe and warm today. It's been very windy and the weather treacherous here in Buffalo. I am writing this on Wednesday night to post on Thursday, and we are supposed to have some really bad weather tomorrow. I'm hoping I'm home on a snow day! Wish me luck!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping in! ***It was official at 5:45 this morning...we have a snow day!***

What a great idea to cut a heart shape out around the otters! CAS is hard for me too!

What a cute card Lisa! I like how you sponged the red around the scalloped heart & that heart boarder is fabulous! Those little rhinestone hearts are a nice accent :) TFS
