Hearts and flowers ....

... I think it must be something to do with the date on Monday - Valentine's day - but there are a lot of challenges at the moment that want us to use hearts, lots of hearts, on our cards.  So this card has been made for three challenges:
  1. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Hearts gone wild!
  2. Crafty Cardmakers - Hearts!
  3. My Time to Craft - Hearts and Flowers!
I've gone wild with pink, lilac and hearts - and this card is for my gorgeous little girl.  I've made a special card for her Daddy, and I know she'll want one too!  I know that Kathryn claims to be a Goth Princess - but she's still quite taken with pink!!



I decided that I'd use one of my pre-printed card bases - it has lots of hearts on it!!  I printed off the lovely heart and flower tree by Pink Petticoat and coloured it with Promarkers.  I stamped a number of hearts onto vellum and embossed them with a variety of pink and lilac embossing powders.  These Petaloo flowers come with gems already attached - and I tinted them with inks to match the card.  Finally I made the greeting using the Fancy Tags die, tinted it with Distress ink and added the cutest greeting!  That's it! 

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Sweethearts;  Pink Petticoat - Heart and Flower tree digi-image
Spellbinders:  Fancy Tags (S4-235), Big Scalloped Ovals Lg (S4-251) die # 4
Inks:  Distress - Spun Sugar; Memento - Sweet Plum
Promarkers: Leaf Green, Bright Green, Oatmeal, Honeycomb, Chestnut, Amethyst, Pale Pink, Magenta, Cerise, Orchid, Mulberry
Accessories:  Papermania - Card base; Various embossing powders; Petaloo flowers

I've been very busy in my craft room making my card for the February Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz - the party starts on 17th February - so there's still plenty of time to join the fun.  Check here for all the details.  And I've been busy working on another project - but you'll have to wait until Sunday to see that one!!  Yes, I know - it's a tease :)  But I will be back later!
