Muse #23 - Hearts on a String

Monday's Muse #23 challenge is a beautiful clean and simple design:
 
I was immediately inspired and went through several designs before coming up with my final card:
 
Cardstock is from Papertrey Ink; stamp is from Simon Says Stamp.
 
I drew the lines with a Sakura pen; the glitter hearts were punched with the Martha Stewart multiple heart punch.  The glitter paper doesn't rub off, so it's safe for OWH.  I studied the inspiration card  closely and noticed that she kept to the Rule of Odds in the number of sequins she used.  I did the same thing with my hearts.
 
This card reminds of that song with the lyrics about "you've got my heart on a string".
 
Thank you to the Muse design team for changing the times for their challenge. I was ready to play in last week's challenge and discovered that I missed the deadline!  Boo hoo.
 
Catch ya'll later!
