Hearts and Stars

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Red/White/Blue AND/OR Stars & Stripes”. Just look at the lovely mood board – it will surely help you to get started. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I decided to play with hearts in different shapes and sizes as the focal point of my card. As the card is for a teenage girl I choose background papers that create the idea of a denim look. I layered the hearts on the blue striped background paper and added little red stars for a cheerful look. I finished off with a paper lace border, red roses, glitter and bows. The sentiment die is from Spellbinders. This was a really quick and easy card to make and I hope the (teenager!) recipient will love it.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Hearts with red inlays

More hearts and stars

The flowers and bow

The sentiment

A peep at the inside
