HA thank you Ombre Hearts Stencil Card

Created this card using a new Hero Arts thank you stamp. Stamped using HA Ombre inks. Stamped the sentiment and then cut the front of the card so inside shows. Added washi tape & an embossed heart border. Thought it was still a bit plain so I used a Tim Holtz Hearts stencil & TH Distress Ink to complement the ombre look.

Before use of stencil:

After adding Stencil Hearts:
