You hold the key to my Heart!!

Hello bloggy pals!!
Hope you all are doing great! the crafting isn't going on much these days. Only the little that's restricted to occasions! the northern part of India is immensely cold and chilly these days with temperatures nearing freezing point often and the rains are just making things worse!
Today I have a card to share with you all and its a valentine day card I made for someone special;).. I made it in brown basically and wanted it to have the grungy ..distressed look..I hope I did fine. What do you think??
 


 I used the kraft paper as card base and the kraft layer on top is actually the inside of a packaging of a stamp set..
 The heart with wings stamp is from some Chinese company and the texture stamp are kaiserkraft. I also used the Mini Punchinella Template  and Harlequin template. I also used the Prima fairy belle cling stamp so fair pretty...and also Tim Holtz urban grunge script stamp. Used some acrylic paint in red in the heart and glossy accented hem later. The key!!! yep the key! I went on and on searching them from one store to another but could not find them! everywhere they were out of stock ...finally found it with Nupur
 
 
 The hexagon have been handcut and I did TRIPLE STAMPING. the last layer in the triple stamped image has been fussy cut. used some vintage photo distress ink to give depth to my card..
 
 the sentiment is computer generated..

 
Submitting it to the following challenges-
 
Lessology challenge#32- you hold the key to my heart- the upcycled item I used are the twine used in the card (I hope you can see it just on top of the sentiment) is the one from my old school project files to tie the file papers.i had to ink it to mask the white colour. also the kraft paper layer on top of the base is the packaging of a stamp set.
 
Mynnettes technique tuesday-Triple stamping- did triple stamping on the top and middle hexagon. the top one has a variation .I fussy cut the last stamped image(instead of layering it on base) to give it the needed dimension. 
 
Do leave me your comments.
Love
Jaya
