Simple Love Notes Card

I'm Card Captain of the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group for this week, so for 5 days I'll be showing you several works using Michael Strong's stamps. I hope you'll find them inspiring.
Here's my 2nd card for this week, in strong, contrasting colors.
It is a 50 years anniversary card for an overseas friend.

Cream leather textured CS for the card's basis
Red leather textured CS
Black canvas textured CS
Patterned paper - Background Papers Book 1 by Crafty Individuals
EK Success Edger Punch - Morocco Lace
Michael Strong's Cloisonné Heart stamp (large)
Embossing Ink
Gold EP
Ranger's Distress Ink - Black Soot
Black lace
Red half pearls
3D double sided foam tape

I punched the black canvas textured CS using EK Success Edger Punch - Morocco Lace.
I distressed the patterned paper using Ranger's Distress Ink - Black Soot.
I layered the papers and added a piece of black lace for a romantic look.
I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Heart stamp (large) on red leather textured CS, heat embossed it with gold EP, then cut it with nail scissors and glued it 3D for extra dimension
I added several red half pearls for extra glam.
