Crafty Cardmakers - hearts


Well it was my turn to choose the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers for this fortnight, and I thought I'd stay with the valentine's theme that's everywhere at the moment, and decided on 'hearts' as my theme.  It wasn't quite as simple as I thought it would be, mainly because I've finished all my valentine's orders and made hubby's card.  I needed a 'special' card for my cousin's 18th birthday though, so I thought I'd pile lots of hearts on this instead... obviously I'm now doubting myself and wondering if it's really suitable but there's not a lot I can do about it now!

The card blank is a large 8" square.  I've used one of the gorgeous Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie, and coloured her with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  It's the first time I've coloured this one, although I've had her for a while - I thought she might be a bit tricky but she wasn't really.  The papers are digi ones from Sweet Shoppe Designs, printed onto papermill linen card, with some pink linen card from my stash.  I cut the big hearts on the Cricut (plantin schoolbook cart), the numbers were cut using the Sizzix 'night & day' alphabet and then covered in stickles.  Added some flat back pearls to finish.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
