Double D Challenge . . . 'Pretty Pink Hearts'

It's time for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog.
Team Diane is hosting today's challenge 
and take a peek at this beautiful inspiration board.

 WOW!  What a beautiful board Diane has put together for us today!

I just received some new dies from the Dies R Us store
and couldn't wait to create with them.  Just so happens they were PERFECT
for today's creation.  What do you think?

I have used a very PINK card stock for my card front ... but for some reason
my camera chose to make it more 'orangey' vs pink ... uugh!
I'm sure it's just an adjustment on my camera but I have yet to sit down and read that
LARGE booklet that came with the camera .. (imagine that!).

Notice the hearts on the inside of
my card.  Yep, they are some of those that
die cut from the front panel.  They are so
pretty (several have stitching) that I
just couldn't help but use them elsewhere
on my card.  I even added the larger one
to the heart on the front.

The 'white heart' on this Poppystamps 
'Heart Swoosh' die does cut out but
I decided to add it back in this time.

I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but
I decided to pop up the entire front panel
with dimensional tape.  I think it gave
the Poppystamps 'Heart Breeze' a prettier
appeal and brought your eye to the stitching more too.

I do hope you'll come join in the fun we are having at our new Double D Challenge Blog.  Diane & I are just THRILLED with the fabulous show of support you have all given towards our new adventure and have truly been inspired by so many AMAZING creations.

  12. Sweet card! Love the swirl with the hearts and how you used the hearts on the inside. This challenge looks like fun - hope to be able to play. I am still caring for Grandma and the needs have greatly increased recently but the time frame for your challenge might just allow me to get it done ; )
