Our Creative Corner Challenge Card

Here's a card I made for the OCC challenge ... using 2 hearts or more.

I've had all of these awesome vintage images in my craftroom that I've just started finally putting to use. They make such beautiful vintage cards but I somehow feel like I'm cheating because I haven't done much stamping on the card.

Anyways, isn't she adorable!!! This image is from a Vintage Children CD that I purchased on Ebay from the CD Shack Media company. The flowers were white and I colored them in using my blender pen and SU Rose Romance ink ... the leaves were done with Old Olive. The base card is a pre-made A-6 white card from Michael's which I've covered using designer paper from The Paper Studio and edged using my Gold Pilot Marker. I used my new Label One Nesties to die cut my image and matting. The pink cs hearts were cut using the small (yellow) Marvy heart punch and strung together with gold elastic cording. A couple of gold Anita's Outline Stickers were used to accent the corners of my image. The only stamping on this card was done with a $1 Valentine set I purchased at Target.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek ... it's always so good to hear from you all!!
