Wishing you a happy heart - blue

Tonings of blue along with the whisper white gives a crisp finish to this card.

Simple layering of colours and paper sizing help to draw the eye to the centre focus which is the dandelion and the small hearts floating away.  The white ribbon and rub on help with the finishing touches.

Hope you like it.  Keep smiling.....Ann

I love you...with a happy heart

I must thank Mary Fish, US Stampin Up demonstrator for allowing me to case this card.

The dandelion image emits tiny little cute....brings back childhood memories of how we used to blow them in the wind!  I inked the main image in Versamark, stamped it on Bravo Burgundy and heat embossed it in white.  It's layered on a piece of at home - Caramel coloured textured cardstock.

Bella Bleu and Bella Rose DSP creates a beautiful background (both patterns).  The top layer is matted on at home - caramel coloured textured card stock.  I popped out the sentiment (also from A Happy Heart using basic black ink on Bravo Burgundy cardstock) with my oval punch.  The individual image was stamped again in Versamark on Bravo Burgundy, heat embossd in White and cropped with a 1/2" circle punch.  Tip:  I next layered the embossed heart on the sentiment with a Stampin' Dimension.

The finished sentiment is adhered to the Bravo Burgundy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon with a small silver heart brad.  The card base is at home - lighter caramel coloured textured cardstock.  The dandelion is topped off with a small rhinestone in the centre.

Hope you like it.
Keep smiling....Ann
