Two NEW challenges for me -- {PIN}spirational and CAS on Sunday!

There are so many new challenges to chose from, I hardly know where to start!  I made a card yesterday that actually works for two challenges....{PIN}spirational and CAS on Sunday.  Both of these are great challenges and I'm glad I found them!

Here's the {PIN}spiration image used this week to inspire our creativity:


The very first challenge for CAS on Sunday is to create a card with the theme "Be My Valentine".

Here's my card:


I used a white card base and rounded the bottom corners with a corner chomper.  I designed the hearts in my Silhouette program, and slightly overlapped each of the hearts and then welded the heart together so that I could cut out a strip of hearts.  I then cut out 4 layers of each of the rows and glued them together.  I cut out one additional heart, colored it with red Copics, and layered it on top of the last heart in the last row.  I added a couple of coats of glossy accents.  The sentiment is from PTI and is stamped in Memento black.  It truly was a super simple card....and now that I've made the heart design in my Silhouette program, I can use it over and over.  If anyone would like to have this file (it's in Silhouette Studio....I'm not sure how to change it to svg, but I could learn if someone wants a copy), just let me know and I'll send it to you.  You can contact me through my email by clicking on the "contact me" envelope on my sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping in!  I appreciate all your wonderful comments! Until next time...

Hugs!

Love your card, I don't have a Silhouette but do have a PTI heart border die that I think will give a similar effect.
Thanks so much for the idea, I'll certainly give you credit on my blog when I post my card. Good luck in the challenges!
