Well this heart doesn't look much different than what I've done before but the drop shadows were much easier than what I had to go through before to create them. With the Layer Effects I can also go back and change the shadows if I want and I can resize the elements without having to worry about resizing multiple layers. Far fewer layers to achieve the same results. I really like how the layer icon prominently displays that the Layer Effects has been applied. I can easily see at a glance if all the shadows have been placed.

Drop shadows were applied to the heart and all the background elements.

I'm looking forward to Valentine's Day, I'm getting sick to doing hearts. It wouldn't be so bad but I started adding a heart everyday on my Facebook feed on Feb. 1st. It's been good for trying new techniques without having to think about what should be the focus of what I wanted to create, just start with a heart.

Congrats to the AR5 team, great product!
