I wanted all the embellishments to stand out from the background, so I went with very subtle base patterned papers. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but in the upper right corner and on the far right of the sentiment banner, I've added some heart-shaped texturing with modeling paste and a stencil.
The large diecut heart over on the left side is the inside of the Heart Doily Die, and I cut a second piece in black to serve as a shadow. The "Love" word from the Hanging Hearts & Love Word Set was cut three times in black cardstock, and stacked together to give a bit of thickness. The inside of the heart piece is stacked 6 layers deep to make it higher than the black outline...
The textured diecut Wrought Iron Fence behind the Hanging Hearts is the fence I made in the Tutorial Thursday post here on the La-La Land Crafts Inspiration blog last month. The hanging hearts were cut once from coral cardstock, once from patterned papers to use on the heart shapes, and once from black cardstock for a shadow layer. There's a bit of Diamond Stickles decorating the little bows at the top, behind the cream colored pearls...
I needed some bitty flowers to accent the sides of the fence, so I turned to one of my older hydrangea punches to assemble some little purple flowers to decorate the corners of the fence, and accented the centers with Liquid Pearls...
