Isn't Michele's card a beauty?!! I CASE'd the shades of PINK and the HEART that Michele used on her card, and then added a nod to Laura's famous stripes (or stripping as she calls it!) and the black with white embossed sentiment strips she tends to use on her cards for dimension (because dimension is life, right??!!), and came up with this:
I started by cutting different widths of 3 shades of PTI pink cardstock, and then adhering them diagonally across my card base. Next I die cut my heart using a Gina Marie Designs heart die, and then die cutting the "HUGS" from the center using PTI's Big Hugs die set. I also die cut another heart in black to put behind the white heart so the "HUGS" would stand out.
I die cut 3 of PFS's Leafy Branch die and placed them under and over my heart and striped background, and then finished with my sentiment strip that I white embossed on a piece of black cardstock (this is a part of PTI's Big Hugs stamp set), and a few heart gems.
This challenge is open till the 23rd, so check out Michele's card and all the DT cards (HERE) from the TIME OUT Challenge, and then play along.
I would also like to take a minute to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who sent a card to help me celebrate my birthday yesterday...you all sure know how to make a girl feel loved and special, and I smile each time I walk past our entertainment center that is completely covered in absolutely BEAUTIFUL cards! Thank you, thank you!!
