3 into 1

So many challenges and not enough hours in the day. I love all these challenge blogs and am totally addicted to them but there just aren't enough hours in the day to do them all individually so this time i have made a card using 3 challenge.
Saturday Challenge : Theme 'Hearts'
OCC : Technique 'Embossing Resist'
CPS : Any sketch from 1-99.
Ok theme hearts well i think that's obvious on my card.
Embossing resist: the main heart is embossed with black embossing powder and then chalked with red chalk. The mulberry paper at the top is red mulberry paper that i drew little hearts on with my quickie glue pen, and embossed with clear embossing powder. The mulberry paper is then inked with black ink and waterbrush so that the hearts stand out.
The sketch from CPS is number 51 Heart stamp free with papercraft inspirations

made by my daughter

On Daring cardmakers this week you are not allowed to make a thing. Instead you have to get someone else to make it.
Any card, any theme and any colour scheme of your choosing - but the catch... some one else must actually make and assemble the card for you... (with your supervision)!
As my 5 year old daughter has been itching to make another card for a few weeks now i thought that this would be the perfect opportunity for her to have another go and this is what she made.
Hope you like it
