Kind Heart

Hi friends!  It's the first Friday of the month and that mean I'm hosting this week's sketch over at Viva la Verve!  I hope you'll play along.

I went with a simple sketch this week because the closer it gets to the holidays the busier I am and I get super giddy when I can just sit down and create something really quick.  And that's just what this card was.  A fun little 20 minute card (with mass interruptions while the twins stopped me every few minutes to show me the progress on their coloring pages).

To start, I masked off the lower portion of the kind sentiment from Just Breathe  with washi tape so I could stamp just the may your heart be kind portion.  I stamped the hearts, also masking off the edge so I could give the effect of one being behind the other.  I then cut the hearts out, distressed the edges with ink and covered with glossy glaze and a sprinkling of glitter.  The papers are scraps from my stash (yay me for using some up!) and I threaded the narrow strip through one of our  Banner Bundle dies to make the long pennant.  I finished off with green rhinestones and an ivory satin bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend!
