Valentine

Evening everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend and had lots of crafty fun.

I've been having a play with one of the new dies I got before christmas which is from Memory Box and called 'heart waterfall'. I had planned something a little different using a lot more white and a white base card but you know what can happen to plans! I wanted some of the hearts in the lighter pink and had to cut the die at an angle to fit it on the card... then I decided I liked the look of it 'skewiff' and matted it onto dark pink card and ditched all the white apart from the small heart. I stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment and then - a first for me - I added some sequins.



I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Allsorts challenge 'Valentine's day'
Mod Squad challenge 'love is in the air'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'something new'
In The Pink challenge 'bling it on'
DRS challenge 'inspired by - sweet candy heart - colours'
Die Cut Divas challenge 'new technique / die / stamp / colours' (2nd entry)

So a couple more Brownie points for me... used snippets and NBUS. Problem is both piles still are pretty big - but at least I've not added to them this year YET!!

  5. I'm sure what was in your head was very pretty too but what actually landed on the card is just sweet as can be. Anyone would be lucky to receive this card.

  7. What a wonderful clean and simple card. I love the crispness of the hearts, and it's really clever how you "skewed" the die. Great design, and great take on the challenge!! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at the
    Mod Squad Challenge!!

  9. This is so very striking Andrea and has such an elegant feel to it, the "skewiff" works very nicly to show off the die.

    Many thanks for joining us at Allsorts challenge again.
