Sweetheart Sweets with Impression Obsession

Welcome to the Card Concept Challenge #148 called Sweetheart Sweets! When I saw these yummy cupcakes I knew I wanted to try and replicate the images and colors in a Mixed Media card (Definition 2 or more mediums). I used heat embossing and watercolors.
The entire card is made with one stamp by Impression Obsession called Heart Cupcake with a sentiment added. Perfect for the inspiration picture!
One of my favorite ways to make a card is to create my own watercolored background paper with repeat stamping. This is what I did here using my favorites:
Don't you just love the saturation of the Altenew Watercolors?  Bright and type of card.
For some additional interest, I cut out the center with one of my Square Backdrop Dies from Jillian Vance. It leaves a classic embossed edge which I really like on my card. You can see it well in this picture, plus the small dotted edge from the rectangle from SugarPea Designs Card Build Element II set.
I am not sure where the sentiment is from! I keep previously heat embossed sentiments in a bag on my desk and this came from there. I used a few Altenew Red Cosmos Enamel Dots to finish the card.

Thanks so much for visiting today and give this challenge a try! We'd love to see what you create.
