Hellooooo! I can't believe it is Wednesday already :-0! Where has this week gone? I hope that you have had a good one so far - as most of you ladies (USA and UK) had Monday off! Did you get some crafty time in?
This week The Shabby Tea Room is hosting a challenge called "Dear To My Heart" - and the theme is ... well ... hearts :0)
I immediately had the idea of a very soft, feminine card. I don't use hearts in my card making often - so when I do, I want them to look special - not cute. Here is where the challenge took me :
The hearts were stamped with Sweet Blush ink and the Butterfly with Smokey Shadow - I then coloured the butterfly with chalk and Prismacolors - and then embossed the images with Kaleidoscope embossing powder for a shimmery, subtle - "something extra".
Some stitching and pearls finished the hearts off.
This was a wonderful card to make - and I enjoyed it tremendously. It's going to be one of those cards that costs me a pang when it's time to give it away - do you have some of those? :0)
We're having a beautiful sunny day today (and they had predicted rain!) I hope that the sun is shining either outside or maybe inside your *heart* today!
Blessings to you!
