It's time for this week's challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge, and the theme this week is "Hearts and Valentines." This challenge will run from 8:00 AM Feb.9 to 6:00 PM Feb. 15, and the prize for the winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs. So do head on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join us, won't you? We'd love to see you!
My card today uses two images, "Love Birds" (found here) and the sweet, NEW "Heart Fence (found here). I did a little tweaking and put them together to create this cute little image of them perched on the fence.
I colored the image with Copics, applied chalk to the background, and used a glitter pen as accent. I thought the background paper with its zillion teensy hearts was apropos for today's challenge, not to mention those in the image. One can never have too many hearts.
I used a grass die cut for the base of the fence to give a little added dimension.
Some ribbon, a vintage button, baker's twine and some stitching complete this simple little card. I didn't think it called for any serious bling this time.
Thank you for taking the time to join me today, and I wish you a lovely weekend full of creative happiness.
