I hope you have had a fabulous weekend. I seem to have less and less time to craft at the moment but really hope that I can catch up with myself and with all of your wonderful blogs as the week progresses.
I have just managed to squeeze in at the last minute to play along with Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues. Here is my card:
Here is the inspiration photo:
I was inspired by the floaty feel of the heart strings and the combination of whites and metallics. I cut the fabulous SSS heart die in gold mirri and in vellum and adhered them slightly offset to the card using gold staples. I had already splattered the card with gold spray and gold embossed the sentiment from SSS. I also sponged through a Tim Holtz stencil in gold delicate ink on the card base for a bit more interest.
I will also play along at the first AAA Card Challenge of the year where the challenge is Love. I think the SSS heart die works with the inspiration photo:
Given all of the sparkly elements I will also link this card up at SSS Flickr Challenge #12 which is sparkle.
My next card is to play along with Less Is More where it is a colour challenge to use pink and grey. That is one of my fave colour combos so I might try and play along again this week too.
I used new (to me) Clearly Besotted Stamps on this card stamping the keys randomly in the background. I silver embossed the heart lock on the tag and added a few enamel dots for good measure. I was definitely inspired by Michelle's lovely GD card for this challenge! LIM is 4 years old so that is another good reason to play along - big congrats to Chrissie and the lovely DT. I love my Saturday morning visit to LIM to see what they have in store for us :)
Thanks for stopping by,
