Hearts - and yep! I'm losing it!

OK so Saturday I was going to make a card for our digi challenge on Sunday, and indeed I did just that. The challenge was set by our lovely Gunn and she wanted to see HEARTS! Of course being a Charmed digi challenge the most important part was one of our own download images! I had a stack printed and stamped images and was sifting through them looking for one to use. I duly coloured in the one I chose and created my card. Only when I had finished did I realised I had failed the challenge by using a Sarah Kay stamp instead of one of the Charmed digi images. DOH @ ME big time!!! I hid away in the corner until now LOL Please do pop over to Dottie's World and join the challenge (but remember that Charmed image please).

I used my Martha Stewart Hearts Deep Edging punch for this one; first time I've used it and it's FAB! Love it.
Also on the front is Prima Lace for the bow, you can't see it here but I lightly covered parts of the bow in clear adhesive and added some crystal glamour dust - BlackPrima Crystals - Fancy Pants rub-on - Large Crinkled Roses which I sprayed with Old Lace Glimmer Mist - K&Co Sweet Talk Pearls and Red heart crystal - "I heart you" is from the reverse side of the Bo Bunny paper. I glazed the hearts that was part of the design on the paper on the front with Glossy Accent.

The paper is Bo Bunny Persuasion and perfect for Valentine and other romantic occasions. It is double-sided and I used one side for the front and the textual side to cover the inside. I cut both the heart on the front and the two inside with Nestabilities dies. The large chipboard flower inside is a Basic Grey Sugar Rush chipboard around which I wrapped some red fibre.

And the image alas is a Sarah Kay stamp which I coloured in with Copic markers.

Thanks for visiting the Charmed corner of the Web :-)

What a great card Karen, and you've made great use of that heart punch. Fantastic. I'd much rather look at cards like this than make them. :)
