Happy 100th post to me!

Hi All,
WOW! This is my 100th post! That's really exciting as I started this blog not knowing if I would be able to post regularly or ever have any regular viewers. I am so excited that 100 posts and I'm still going strong. I thank everyone who regularly visits and enjoy my creations! You guys inspire me to keep sharing what I love with you all.
Today I have a card to share that has been floating around in my head for a good week or so. I had planned exactly what I wanted to create and the colour combo I wanted to use I just needed to get it out. As we are moving shortly (get the keys on Monday, so exciting!) and stuff is packed in boxes I didn't think I could get it created but on Monday it got the better of me and I HAD to make it. So I unpacked some stuff and whipped up this card. It was such good fun to make as it didn't really have a rhyme or reason and came out looking better than imagined. I hope you like it also.
It seems so poetic as the first card I ever posted was using priceless and my 100th post also uses Priceless! Trust me wasn't planned that way. Anywho! I stamped the small swirl on purely pomegrante CS in the same coloured ink. I then took my white gel pen and went over all the dots. Simple but stunning effect! I then stamped the love heart image and punched it out. I stamped another heart, cut it out and layered it on top with dimensionals to give a 3D effect. Here's a (slightly blurry) close up below
Stamp Set: Priceless
Cardstock: Purely Pomegrante, Bashful Blue, Going Grey
Ink: Purely Pomegrante
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 1/2", 1 3/8" square punch, scallop edge punch, bashful blue brads
Thanks for looking and thanks again for visiting and all your lovely comments
Happy Stampin'
