Valentine's in Pink & Grey

Today's card was inspired by the 'pink & grey' colour combination of this weeks' Less is More challenge. I'm not really a 'pink' person, but I thought that the colours would suit a Valentine's card. I picked some papers from the 'Paper Hearts' pad by Crate Paper, and cut some hearts using my Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts die. I distressed the edges of the papers, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Art, stamped in Memento 'London Fog' ink.
