put your heart into it

Happy Monday morning, my friends. OK, I'm going to admit it -- I messed up! Royally! I posted images before I was supposed to. Not just ONCE (<--- click here), but TWICE (<--- click here)! Ouch! My knuckles are still stinging! I'm blaming it on my age and state of total confusion when you put 'NEW' and 'anything 'COMPUTER RELATED' in the same sentence! I'm completely new to digital images and this is my first design team ever! I sure hope they don't kick me off the team! (just kidding)

In an effort to redeem myself, I made another card for today's challenge on the Squigglefly blog. The challenge is SFC80 Put Your Heart Into It if you want to play along.

For my base layer, I used some digital designer paper from Computer Scrapbook called hello aunty. I sponged the edges with aged mahogany distress ink (Ranger). All the accent layers are bravo burgundy.

I used the same images as before. For the sentiment, I used love is friendship set to music. I lined up several in a row for a different look than just one. This is also sponged with aged mahogany. Then I set it at an angle.

I printed the flower tag really large and used my Spellbinders Classic Hearts to cut the shape. Then I colored it with copic markers and sponged aged mahogany around the edges. I adhered the heart with dimensional tape.

Three pearls (Kaiser craft) finish the card.

Be sure to check out the other design team blogs (you can access them here) and then play along with the challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonder-filled week.

oh Melody you are so funny! However, I always did wish I was the one who got to rap knuckles with rulers when I was growing up in Catholic schools! LOL!
The really great thing is that we got to see THREE wonderful cards from you! I adore the creative way you are using the new tag image. This is really such a sweet card. I love the soft sponging around the heart shape, and I like the repeating sentiment a lot too!
