I am excited to be joining the lovely ladies over at the Time Out Challenges blog today. This is my prize for winning the hearts blog challenge a few weeks ago. I get to be a guest designer YAY!! Thank you so much for such a great prize.
This is also their first birthday woo hoo ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ Time Out Challenges!!!
Today they have a new challenge which is inspired by this photo.
Look at all of those lovely colours!!I wanted to keep my card really simple and let the colours speak for themselves.
I had the perfect stamps in mind for my card. This little row of Heart Strings from Unity. I just bought them recently so this was a great time to use them. I coloured them with my distress inks Picked Raspberry & Salty Ocean. Then I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Sweet Elle stamp set underneath using VersaFine ink.
Next I added some green sequins. It looked a little flat still so I got out my Stickles and applied some sparkle to the hearts and the sequins. I think the sequins now take on the look of enamel dots thanks to the glue. I love happy accidents like that don't you? I then mounted it on to black card and then a polka dot card base that I made from Recollections card that I got at Michaels. Finally I tied some black twine to finish off my card.
I love the way all of the colours come together. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. If you have some time come and join in this fun challenge.
