Be Mine


WOOHOO!!!  Time for a new challenge over at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges.  The Challenge this time is a Valentine with color and shimmer.  First of all let me say that I am not a glittery and shiny person.  I prefer to leave the glitz to others... LOL.  But .. I did my best and this is what I came up with and it is shiny ....

I used one of the frames from the "With Love" set from Daisy Doodles.  I really like the simplicity of them.  I used black cardstock .. a print and a solid paper.  I printed the frame on the solid paper and paper pieced the heart with the print paper.  The papers are from my K&Company stack.  OK for my shimmer I used peel-off borders.  They are black with gold edges.  My son Reno really liked this one.  I think he's going to give it to his girlfriend Katie.  It's always nice that someone likes a card well enough that they want to use it for themselves to give.  :)

Be sure and check out the rest of the Design Team Blogs to see their projects.  They are located on my left sidebar.  And then come and play with us.  We would love to see your projects!!

Lovely card, and love those dusky colours. Great shimmer too, so for a non-glitzy person you've done well!! For me, well, I do like a bit of glitz, so I can certainly approve of your choice! Thanks for playing alond with our Hearts theme with the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog. Hope to see you again next week too. Annette xx
