On Trend: Fuchsia and Navy AND Felt!

That's right--this card has it all: a trendy navy and fuchsia color scheme, AND felt.  If that's not trendy, I don't know what is.  (Okay, there is a chance that I may be totally clueless).  And for some extra trendy kicks, a little bit of bling.
Finished card size is 5 1/4"x5 1/4"
This week's Create: blog challenge was to create a card using at least 6 hearts.  At first it sounded quite simple, but I struggled a little bit in the design.  Sure, I could have used a heart print, but I wanted to challenge myself a little bit.   The end result was a grid stitched with navy thread with fuchsia felt hearts placed in between.  I stamped be mine in fuchsia as well.   I added a small colorless (don't get me started on why it is not called "clear") rhinestone in the corner for a little extra pizazz.  

Warm fuzzies to you,
