A pocketful of Love

Good morning all,
Another Tuesday has arrived and so a new Colour challenge at The Outlaws.

This week AJ has chosen the colour palette and twist and as we are heading to February...the month of Love, she has chosen the twist...Valentine day cards or projects.

If you need inspiration the DT have some lovely cards to show, and up for grabs this month is a $10 gift card for Raspberry Road Designs.

OK, so onto my card.

I used a cream card base and used a good deal of small pieces of patterned paper from my stash.

The pocket is a stamped image, which I cut out.

The hearts are various dies cut out of different pink papers and mounted with silicone for a 3D effect. The pocket was then mounted of them.

The sentiment was generated on my PC and attached with brads.

A small heart brad and pearls to finish.

I will enter this in some challenges:

Get Creative #54...Anything goes
Dream Valley challenge # 148...All about love
Love to Scrap #93...Anything goes

For my card I used the butterflies and the colours as my inspiration.

First challenge of 2017 at Let's Craft and Create

Good morning,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday time and are full of energy for the coming year. We have had such hot weather and quite high humidity some days, so the energy levels are not very high at the moment.

Today is the first challenge of the year at Let's Craft and Create and the theme this month is "Things with wings"...I think 2017 has flown in so fast that it is quite an apt choice. The DT have created such amazing projects, so please hop over and see what they have for inspiration.

For my card I used some  paper that I had made last year with my inks and watercolour paper. This is my last biggish piece, so maybe need to get going on some more of that, it is great fun to do.

The butterfly is an old stamp...one of my first stamps from a local complany. Stamped it twice and cut out and raised the second one. Added gold glitter.

The sentiment was a free stamp from a magazine some time back.
Finished it off with pearls and a bow.

Will enter the following challenges:

Crafty Creations #332...Anything goes
Inspiration Destination #119...Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #264/265...Anything goes
Wonderful Wednesday ...Anything goes

I wish you all an amazing week and hope you are still in a fairly relaxed mood. Take care and see you soon.

Love Ursula
