Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 - Day 2

One layer cards!  Eeeep! I don't find these the easiest - I tend to want to add something somewhere (or end up messing something up and having to cover it with a second layer!) But this card came together exactly the way I planned - love it when that happens!  (as Julie Ebersole would say, lots of "monkey clapping" happened!! )
I went with Jennifer McGuire's technique of using water colour pencils - didn't use them on the sentiment, but on a rainbow of hearts :)  The heart and the sentiment are from a PaperTrey Ink set called "Tremendous Treats - Valentine" - a set with cuteness galore!

Not sure what went on with my camera, but the corners of the photo went all dull on me. :(

You can see that I added some Glossy Accents to each of the hearts - just a little touch that makes a big difference, I think.
 Seeing as the challenge at Addicted to CAS this week is "Heart", I thought I might submit this card there, too :)
 I hope you are having a great day :)
