Birthday Hearts

Welcome back to another fabulous challenge from SugarPea Designs!  This week we have a CAS sketch and a delicious inspiration photo.

I went with the sketch and let the patterned paper from Whatever the Weather do all the work!

I chose two patterns and separated them with a sliver of black cardstock.  For the sentiment, I used the incentive set Gift Greetings and die-cut it with Stitched Flags.  I then layered that slightly offset onto a black flag and tied some pink baker's twine around the end.  A few sequins and my card was finished.

Thanks for visiting!
Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

  • Create a new card or project using the sketch provided.
  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDMIU8 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $50!
  • We will announce our Main Winner at the end of each month.
  • The more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning!
