Two posts in one day!!



After seeing, Jo's and Deirdre's recent circle cards I was inspired. Decided to make this for the current challenge on the Embellish magazine site. The challenge is to make a card using the colours Pink, Red and Black and embellish with hearts. Not hard to try when Valentines Day is only a few weeks away.



Used my Hero Arts cling stamp to create the background, stamped and embossed in pearl on some BasicGrey paper then highlighted with some distress ink. Added the ribbon and a die cut heart with a button stitched to it. The sentiment is computer generated.
