My card went a little crazy today. I thought that TLC56 - Polished Stone would be fun with the Soft Suede and Berry Burst color with some gold mixed in. And I do like the polished stone results, but it doesn't really look like the colors to me. I needed it to be a thank you card, so I used my handlettered cut file that I made awhile back and I sponged it with a Pool Part-ish color. But I also really wanted to go for dessert, because that is a challenge to me. I rarely use solid stamps. I love to color! So I thought this I heart Hearts set would be good because I never use it. So I stamped the hearts and then used the SC79 layout. It's kind of a crazy hodgepodge of things but I like it.

This is such a beautiful, heartfelt thank you card! The polished stone bg is really gorgeous and sets such a nice stage for your trio of solid stamped hearts. How neat to personalize this card with a hand-letter thanks die! ~Karen.

I like your card too and I think the polished stone background works better than you think for the challenge, as I can definitely see the flicks of berry in with the brown and gold. I also like the stamped heart, which are a delight, as is the pool die cut sentiment and twine.
