Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #13

What a fab response to our last challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers. I couldn't believe how many entries there were and how many lovely new goodies our blog entrants had for crimble.

The challenge this week is with a romance theme. I am one soppy old romantic and love Valentines Day so this was an easy one for me to do :)

I used last week's sketch # 150 from CPS for the layout and was initially inspired to incorporate the packaging from some Papermania spotty buttons that I had bought to make a shaker card by adding some red heart confetti and silver chunky glitter.

The heart paper is an old HOTP one.The red paper and letters are from a freebie paper pack from a magazine. The Forever Friends bear is a sticker mounted onto card and cut out. The flowers are various Primas layered together with a silver beadcap and a spotty brad on a Sizzix diecut corner.

I used the swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to the shaker panels, both outside and sanded back and inside and added a little red ink to the dots.

I have also incorporated the following challenges into this card :-

Hi Mandy, This card is gorgeous...and I love the shaker element, is this card for your nearest and dearest?

Pete and I don't normally do valentine...
we never really do the normal expected christmas/ birthday either....we have alway's just brought each other what we want at the time....I hope that does'nt sound meen....it's just the way we have been since we had the kid's, as you can imagine they came first and we made do... So I think it sort of stuck that way...

Though now I am a card maker I don't suppose I have an excuse not to make him a card...lol...so you have inspired me....
