There is a challenge this week at Joan's Gardens that I wanted to enter along with many other talented card makers. The guidelines were that it needed to be pink and white, it needed to have a border, and it needed to have at least one heart.
I made the flower out of many cut out hearts, and there are also hearts in the pink border along the right hand side of the card. I wanted to include a scripture verse about the heart, so I added Proverbs 3:5 as a sentiment. I think I will make two more of different styles, and give them to my daughters. They are all such sweet "hearts".
I entered this card at Joan's Gardens, Word Art Wednesday and at The Sisterhood of Crafters blogs.
So, now I have added another card following the same guidelines. Here it is:
The border is white lace along the right hand side; the hearts are the little conversation candy hearts that show up every year around this time. Another scripture verse, Psalm 33:21 carries the heart theme also. I must say, working with pink and white has been quite a challenge, but it has been fun exploring the possibilities. The wheels are still turning. :o) Another entry for Joan's Gardens.
I made one final card for the Joan's Gardens challenge, so that I could give one to each of my three daughters. The third one has a border of pink and white striped ribbon, and lace around a heart that has the scripture from Psalm 13:5. The bow looks red in the picture, but it is actually a dark hot pink. Little pink rhinestone gems finish the project. I also sprayed it with pink glitter spray, but it is so subtle that unless the card is in the sunlight, it is hard to detect any glimmer.
