Congratulations! Stamped and embossed with The Paper Loft Shades of Gray

I created this love/wedding themed card for a card swap.  I wanted to use a variety of techniques and textures.  I embossed the silver hearts and the silver sentiment.  The top note layer is stamped with a large stamp going "off the edge".  I used die cuts and fussy cuts generously inking all the edges for plenty of distress.

Mix'd Media Stormy ink

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
