Soft, Sweet and Sentimental

Hi Blog friends!  To my U.S. friends, I hope you're having a fun-filled Labor Day Weekend and getting in those last summer excursions before the cooler weather gets here.  

I have some very exciting news!  (In case you didn't catch it), I was selected as "Chic of the Week" over at JUGS for their challenge #99!  My mini star-book won the 3-D Back to School Challenge and you'll notice I have the coveted "Chic of the Week" badge on my blog.  Clicking on it will take you to the post of the card if you'd like to see it.  I'm very excited to have won this honor.  

Now, on to more challenges.  The challenge I'm entering with this card is for the CR84FN37 which is a fabulous color challenge.  

And here's my card

The CS is GKD Pure Luxury White and Turquoise Sea. I inked up the EF with DI Tumbled Glass and ran it through the CB for the background effect.  I inked a second EF to create the words on the heart.  The hearts are dies from Spellbinders, wrapped with a ribbon and decorated with a mulberry flower/lace and pearls.  The sentiment, which is stamped and die cut with a Fancy Tag Die from Spellbinders, is from Gina K Designs "You Warm My Heart" stamp set by Rupa Shevde.   

So happy you stopped by and enjoy the weekend!
