And as always there will be a marvelous prize offered to you by Wild Orchid Crafts. So please come over and join in with us for this fun challenge!!!!
For my card I used the absolutely darling little Wee Bunny by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps which was colored with Flexmarkers and Promarkers. I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Glitz Pretty In Pink Paper Pack, and all background panels are machine stitched. (NOTE: So many of you have asked me where I get my DP and I wanted to share that I have found that the very best place is Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. Not only does she have the latest and greatest BUT her customer service is second to none!!! I can order paper on one day and within 2 days it is in my house....that is all the way across the country!!!) The little brown bag of hearts will hold a gift card. I must admit that I had used all but two of my hearts from the Mixed Heart Charm so I had to use some of the antique hearts and brass findings which were a gift from a Wisconsin pal. Thanks, Steve, for these sweet family pieces AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU!!!! I used some lovely Vintage Light Mink Seam Binding to tie the brass sconce in the upper corner. The Natural Cotton Lace was gathered down the side of the image using Scor-Tape. For the floral treatment I used a couple of 1" Open Roses and a 5/8" Open Rose which I sprayed with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist. Finally I added one of the little heart pins from the Pearl Heart Shaped Pin Wheel.
The script card on the first panel was actually the backing for some Prima something...can't remember what...lol The heart which is from the Mixed Christmas Wooden Shape Embellishment set which was coated with a bit of Picket Fence Crackle Paint. And this lovely heart was one of my last remaining hearts from the WOC set and I tied it with some more seam binding. For the second panel I used more of the cotton lace and a distressed BINGO card along with my last WOC tiny heart and more seam binding.
I hope you like my little creation and will hop on over to the Wild Orchid Challenge to check out the lovely examples this week AND also to the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog to view even more beauties and to toss your name in for a special prize today!!!!
