Sweetheart Time

Happy Saturday,
Over at it is my good friend Sandy's turn to choose the theme for the next two weeks. This time she is getting us ready for Valentine's by asking us to create a card or project which MUST include at least one heart.

Now I haven't made a Valentine's card but a birthday card which I was asked to make by a friends husband so I am hoping Sandy will let me have this one. As you can see there are hearts on it. The  banner strip has paper with hearts on as does the bunting and there is another soft pink one under the flowers.
Both the ditsy flower paper and the stripe paper are embossed to give texture. I pleated the pink satin ribbon myself then topped with lace which I ran the twine around before attaching it to the card. As you can see everything is matted on brown paper to give the card warmth and age it a little. The leaves are cut using Verve's Sprightly Sprigs die which I recently bought and the flowers and pearls are from my stash.
The card is a 7x7 tent fold. Now please pop over to see what the other girls have made and then join in with the fun.


Hi, so sorry but Blogger won't allow me to load my photo for some reason, pulling my hair out right now.
