Stampin' Success Inspired

As a Stampin' Up independent demonstrator I receive a monthly magazine called Stampin' Success it's full of ideas, stories and inspiration.  I loved the card on this month's front cover so I decided to recreate it with my own twist.  I actually used this card at a recent workshop - the layout is simple and versatile.

I had a workshop last week and for many reasons needed a card idea that was quick, easy, demonstrated a couple techniques but didn't need many supplies.  I know this sounds like a lot to ask but I knew it was possible.  I turned to my Idea Book & Catalog for inspiration and I found it!  (on page 134 - if you're wondering)  I have had the Priceless set since I became a demonstrator last summer but rarely use it - so why not try it out for a workshop?  I saw the card with 3 hearts and thought "it's perfect!" but I'll use a stamp I can use a punch with and here is what I created:
