Candy Colored Hearts Challenge F4A46

*Click on any pictures if you wish to enlarge*

 Feeling quite bored being at home and sick *sigh*
Definetly NOT the week-end I had planned...
Between resting and sleeping (a lot!), drinking fluids (a lot!), doing some reading and crosswords puzzles...what else is there to do? STAMPING of course!!! *smile*
Sooooo, I decided to join in  a challenge on SCS...

Here are the details:
"Free 4 All Friday Challenge this week. The Challenge is “Candy Colored Hearts”
Create any kind of a project you like... but you project must have something purple, something pink and a heart."
 Free 4 All Friday Challenge this week on SCS (Splitcoast Stampers)


This card has two opening 'flaps'.
Made the heart enclosure using my new Spellbinders Hearts Nesties. An appropriate sentiment is hidden inside.




In the second opening I added 'Top Note' in ivory bazzil c/s over pink c/s w/stamped hearts images.
Of course I did NOT forget the Stickles!! lol



Here's a sideway closeup showing the card's dual openings. When I started creating this, I had no idea I was going to make it this way...but hey...once the cretive juices take over...ya never know where it takes ya! :o)

Card Deets :
  Stamps:Love,Always (SU 2001);   Always
('everything' sentiments)  
Ink: Rich Razzleberries;
Card Stock: SU purple,pink and ivor
Designer Paper: K & Company 'Lovely'
Accessories: Top Note, Spellbinders Hearts Nesties, Stickles,  mini paper roses,purple satiny ribbons, purple gem, glue dots.
Card measures 5x5" square.

I really like these paper rosettes and will definetly need to get more of them. The purple satiny ribbons were added merely for the purpose to cover up the large scallopped heart's 'side wings'....they were showing way too much and I didn't quite like their exposure.

As you can see I didn't spare the Stickles here either...it adds a sparkly,glittery finish which I love  ;o)
What do YOU think??
Please leave me a sign of your
visit....LOL

~* Blessings to you*~
