Here's my mixed media card...I was inspired by the colors and the heart:

I heat embossed the background in white and blended some brown ink. 
I squeezed hot glue in the shape of a heart and made an impression using the same stamp as the background. Paint the raised heart using acrylic paint and let dry. Draw a heart around it with black pen. I also inked the heart with Brilliance ink pad for more contrast.
Add ribbon and adhere the panel on a panel with torn edges.
Hand draw a frame on the card base and ink the edges, before adhering the final panel on.

I have a video on YouTube showing how I stamp on hot glue, if you want to take a look:
