GIVE IT SOME HEART


My next card for today is for Daring Cardmakers Challenge - "Give it some Heart". Well this card has been made using some recycled bits. I was standing in my daughters room taking some picures of my cards, and lying on her table was an empty perfume box, which had all these little hearts on, and I had just read the Challenge for Daring Cardmakers. So immediately I decided I had to use these little Hearts. The "sentiment" at the bottom was also a little romantic saying that was down the side of the perfume box, so I thought it would make a lovely sentiment, and it says " True Love lasts forever". The rest of my card is made up of : Backing paper from Papermania 6x6 paper pad called "Exquisite", Rose ribbon, and Heart Gems from my craft stash, and finally the Big Heart at the bottom of my card, was a freebie from a craft magazine. Hope you have enjoyed you visit, and thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a lovely day.

To think that such a lovely box would have probably ended up in the rubbish.
I’m so pleased that you gave it a new lease of life and made your beautiful card to share with us.
