Here are a couple of cards that I made for Valentine’s Day.


A sparkly clear button and black sequin were added to the red hearts for a touch of fun.


The large heart was die cut out of the card base.  By adhering a piece of double sided designer paper (dp) to the inside of the card, both sides of the dp can be seen.  And it dresses up the inside of the card, too.  LOVE!


Here are the challenges that the cards are playing along in this week:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  “Have a Heart”

Muse Challenge #102:  Interpretated Muse by having a large heart and an offset element.

The Card Concept Challenge #27:  I have made a “Clean and Simple” card design.

Fusion Challenge:  “Two Hearts”

Just Us Girls Challenge: #277:  “Photo Week”

Crazy4Challenges – C4C270: “Funky Holidays – Opposites”:  Opposites include Black/White, Large Heart/Small Heart and using both the Front/Back of the designer paper in both card designs.

Happy Crafting!
