Heart Challenges

Hi everyone,

I've got to get going on my Valentine cards and two challenges this week are helping me do that.

I'm entering this card for those two challenges.   The first challenge is for Joan's Garden Weekly Challenge #2 and the other challenge is over at Speedy the Cat's Challenge #39

The details for Joan's Weekly Challenge #2 are to make a card using:
1.   Paper with a stripe in it.
2.   A button or other embellishment
3.   Use a heart
4.   Use a bow

The details for Speedy the Cat's Challenge #39 at Mark's Finest Papers are to use hearts on your card.


Here's my card:



My card base is made with Gina K Pure Luxury White.  I used a Scalloped Nestabilities Heart Die to cut through the sea green colored cs (from my stash) and I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz "Antique Linen" Distress Ink.  I then layered behind that piece an embossed and distressed piece of cs cut with a regular Nestabilities Heart Die in on smaller size.  Next I layered with Graphic 45 DP "Once Upon a Springtime" collection piece stamped with a sentiment from the GKD stamp set "Love Notes"  The ribbon is MS, roses are from my stash and the button is one from my treasured old/antique button collection.  Once put together, I layered it on my the front of my card base and called it good.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week.
