Hearts

We have a new challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme for this challenge is Hearts.  This is because we have a new sponsor, Norhalma Verzosa who is a Close to My Heart Independent  Consultant. Norhalma is very generously donating a Close to My Heart stamp set to the lucky winner.  In honour of this our theme is Hearts.  Here is what I have made:


Plenty of hearts there I think!  I really don't know who the image is by I have had this stamp a very long time I think I bought it at a show somewhere and this is the first time I have used it - I had to put the EZ Mount on it but it had just been lying in my drawer but I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I have coloured it with Copics.  The doily is a Cheery Lynn - Sophia's Heart.  I have made the tag by stamping a script stamp and heat embossed using white embossing powder and then used Victorian Velvet DI.  The edge of the stamp has been cut with a Martha Stewart punch, the rose is from Teresa at My Crafty Heart and I think the leaves are from the Ribbon Girl.  I have used a Cheery Lynn die for the butterfly and cut it out twice once with cardstock and the top layer with vellum.  The paper is a gorgeous new pad I bought by Prima called Romance Novel.  The ribbon and lace heart are from my stash and the gorgeous ribbon button and gem are from the Ribbon Girl.

Please pop over to Card Makin' Mamas to see the beautiful creations the rest of the DT have done and there is also a DT call on at the moment if you are interested.  You have two weeks to make a card for the challenge so please have a go we would love to see what you make.
