Ink Smooshing Thanks

Hey guys!  Today I want to show you the card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog Thanks/Thanksgiving Challenge.  Whew, that's a tongue twister, isn't it?  To make this card, I used some Michael's cardstock for the base, and some 140lb watercolor paper for the ink smooshing (see Kristina Werner for how to do that technique).  I stamped a sketchy heart from Tim Holtz' Heartfelt Visual Artistry collection in Versamark, and then embossed it in white.

I then used Your Next Stamp's Thanks die on black cardstock, which I mounted on fun foam (cut from the same die) and adhered it to the front of the ink smooshed panel.  I think mounted the panel onto some paper from my stash.  Both the smooshed panel and the layer behind it were cut using Your Next Stamp's stitched rectangle dies.  I finished the card off with some CtMH enamel dots and some Wink of Stella, which I used on the thanks die cut.  You can see the sparkle more in the close up picture below:
