Valentine Love

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Valentine Love”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the red and black colours and I tried to incorporated these into my card. I used a light green plaid paper as background, then layered the six die cut hearts in a block pattern on the base card. I die cut the hearts from black glitter paper, cream and red cardstock and then swop the centres so that each heart have a contrasting frame. I layered the centres of the hearts with mirror tape for dimension. I also cut additional  leaves to add on the hearts for more colour and interest. I finished off with red roses, gem stone hearts, a die cut lace border and a sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    I absolutely LOVE what you have done with this card. So much so, I searched out that sweet heart die cut and ordered it. I think adding the flowers and the gemstone hearts just really puts this over the top. I’m pinning!!!
