Follow Your Heart

Hi there my crafty friends!  I started today's card by playing with some of the new Pixie Sparkle colours.  I sprinkled Molten Gold and Boulevard Lights all over a piecee of white card and spritzed them with water to activate the powders.  I allowed it to dry thoroughly, then used the Heart Strings embossing folder on it for texture.  I cut a black frame using the Decorative Noble Hearts. I added a white backing piece to it then added it with foam to the middle of the card.  I cut the single heart from the Heart Accessories set and added the bud from a leftover piece of the background.  I cut the Follow Your heart sentiment in black and glued it to the inside of the frame with the rose.  I cut two thin heart borders from the Romantic Edger  set out of black and used them diagonally in the lower right corner as an accent.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful way to start the weekend. I do love the heart strings folder and your colourful background takes on the effect of gilding flakes, I have to venture out to my local craft shop for a re-stock of cardstock so I just might take a look at Jamie's pixie sparkle collection, another CE designer designing and making us poor lol. Yes Sue a beautiful card that would be perfect for that beautiful person you love so much.... 'Follow your Heart' lovely friends xxxx

Good Morning Sue. Oh what a lovely card today. I love it. But I also love your background. Those colours ... Ohhh my word ... it's amazing. You are so clever and also in my opinion ... very brave ... to try out all these techniques not knowing what you will get at the end product. If all my efforts turned out like this I would be well happy. Thankyou Sue.
Sending hugs ๐Ÿค— and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
PLEASE PLEASE KEEP STAYING SAFE ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
