BasicGrey Challenge 22 'Hearts'


Hi everyone and Happy Valentine's Day! I'm sure, like me, your letter boxes won't be able to take the strain of all the cards you'll receive today ROFL!

This week's challenge on BasicGrey is 'hearts' in keeping with today and my design team friends have some stunning creations for inspiration so I hope you can join in. I've made a little heart shaped gift bag again courtesy of my friend Sandra's Cricut which I've covered with nestability cut scalloped hearts from BG Bittersweet papers. I've decorated with a button, tiny pink bow and very big wire edged ribbon for the handle. On the card I cut a triangle of paper for the first layer and added another scalloped heart popped up on dimension tape. The hearts have been sponged on the edges with Ranger distress ink and I also doodled some dots on the card. Sentiment is a studio G stamp and I've decorated again with the big ribbon, button with bow and a gem. TFL and have a great weekend. Chris
