Green Heart

Welcome!  I made this card on the weekend and thought I'd better get it on my blog before the various challenges closed :)  Lately, the blogging part of this hobby has been left until the last minute - must be a bit more disciplined!

Anyways, I made this card using the sketch at MFT, the colors from The Heart Desires and the masculine theme at Simon Says Stamp.

From the latest MFT release, the things I fell in love with most were the Color Drop stamps and dies.  So, when I got the chance to buy these, I jumped on them and had to use them as soon as they arrived.  I decided to make two hearts from two different green cardstocks, layering one on top of the other.  I also popped the right hand side up on foam to add some interest.  The card base is a soft gray color and then I added a black fishtail flag frame.  The sentiment and word die are from Mama Elephant and I just love the white embossing on the red strip - such a bright pop of color!

I think this card would be suitable for a teenage boy (or girl, for that matter) - the colors are young and fun.

Thanks so much for visiting.
