Mosaic Heart

I could not resist to play in the Paper Smooches challenge  - with such a pretty inspiration picture.


I made my card a few days ago, but waited to post it, since I wanted to surprise my sister - I made it for her. I had to just copy that heart  - too tempting not to.... I used a Lifestyle Crafts die, which cuts out squares and then I cut it by hand into triangles. 


I tried it on a grey background, but in the end liked the white better with just a little bit of grey sponging around the heart. 


 The sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler. I added some sequins for extra sparkle. gold triangles I used shimmer paper -- looks really pretty in real life.

I am also linking this card up with Bizzy Becs - "LOVE/FRIENDSHIP"....... 
Time-out challenge - Love and/or Friendship

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it?
