I have to share a funny story about my card this week:
This card really morphed from one idea to the next. My first idea was to make a heart by weaving ribbons together, and finishing it with lace trim. I saw a sample of this technique in one of my books. Before I started to do that, I changed my mind to just using the ribbons in a pattern, without weaving them, to cover the heart shape. But I still tried to put the lace around it. That didn't work too well, so I
Well, I didn't realize that until I went to share my card with the other DT members on our posting board. There I read the 3 items again: buttons, bows, and/or bling. It didn't say ribbon! Now what?! I dug through my stash and found the perfect red gem stringers that I put all around the card, and finished the corner off with a red heart on a paper clip. Now I have BLING! Sorry for the long tale of woe...here's my final metamorphosis!!
I popped up 2 layers of pink heart shadows; I really like how that looks..
And here's the inside. The sentiment is a wooden $1.00 stamp from Michael's. Used some pink heart bling for the corners.
I'm going to also enter this card in the following challenges.
