CS Designs Twirly Heart




Over on the CDAC last weekend there was a magnificent Heart blog hop and loads of designers generously gave away a wonderful array of digis. This gorgeous heart is by CS Designs and is so pretty.

I Coloured the image in with Promarkers adding a darker colour to accent the swirls and lots of gems to add some sparkle.

The layout of the card is the current sketch from Wee Memories. I covered the base of the card with some new paper that I had by Trimcraft. It is a First Edition Pad called Love Letters and has got lots of lovely papers, some are embossed and glittered and some are double sided. The top paper has been punched courtesy of Martha Stewart. The more I use these punches the more I appreciate just how well they cut even quite intricate designs compared to a lot of the other makes of punches.

The gorgeous ribbon & lace trim is another fabulous find from Birmingham Rag Market last week. This one Asian lady did so many fabulous trims I spent £11.00 with her and she was gobsmacked I was going to use them for cards. This one was such a bargain at only 75p per metre. I tell you I could have spent a small fortune and really had to restrain myself....

The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry and has been cut using a Quickutz Cookie Cutter die, edged with a little ink pad and the heart embellishments are from Paperchase.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
