Stuffed Hearts

Today I have a card that I've created for the MelJen's Challenge - to use Red and Gold.  I have been pondering on how to bring this all together for a few days.  Then after I discovered some gold braided cord in my sewing box, it just came together all at once.  I used Stampin' Up red cardstock as my base and some lovely patterned paper from ATD for the background.  I distressed the outside edge just to add a finishing touch. Then I added the sentiment from MelJen's Designs, matted to some red cardstock and added three pearls that I coloured with my metallic gold marker (I also added a few more gold dots).  I took apart the gold cord, then used three strands separately- tied around the cardstock base.  I then stuffed my hearts into place - secured with pop-up glue dots.  The whole base is then adhered to the card with glue dots (due to the coil being there).  It was a fun card for me, and challenged me to try something new.
