Elegant Wedding or Anniversary Card for Heart2Heart Challenges

I can hardly believe this is my last entry as a Design Team member for Heart2Heart Challenges.  Six months really flew by fast!  I've had such a wonderful time being on the team - so many talented ladies and so many people joining in the fun participating in the challenges.  I have definitely learned a lot during my time and have added oodles of ideas for my own crafting from all the participants and have been stretched artistically by my wonderful team members!  A huge thanks goes out to Mary Vogel who is the team captain and blog owner - thanks for picking me and letting me be part of such a wonderful venture!

Here is my entry for this week's challenge - an elegant card suitable for a wedding or anniversary.
I softened the brighter pinks of our Lucy paper by layering some vellum on top.  I added an Art Philosophy shape underneath along with a sweet sentiment from a retired set.
The roses were embossed in silver on Colonial White and then tinted with Blush using my waterbrush.  A little bit of Stardust Glitz in the centers gave me the effect I wanted.
I adore our Rhinestone Designer Brads for an instant pop of class on any project and color matching our Color Ready Seam Binding to any project is a snap.

I hope you'll join us this week at Heart2Heart Challenges and create an elegant wedding/anniversary card using some CTMH products!  I adore seeing all your creations and want to celebrate my final days as a Design Team member (sniff, sniff) by visiting each of you!

CTMH Super Dad Card for Father's Day at Heart2Heart Challenges

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges is to create a project for Father's Day!  Since I have to make a couple of cards for this special occasion it was a good challenge for me to get started on my work.  This is the card I made for my kids to give my husband - it pretty much says it all - Mark is a super Dad and my kids are lucky to have him.
Don't you just love our new Varsity alphabet?  I was resisting getting another E size alphabet but its just so cute and perfect for school layouts and masculine projects that I finally gave in.  So glad I did!
To give the corrugated cardboard stars a new look I went over the tops with my White Daisy marker, a super quick and easy method to get the painted look.  The metal nailheads are our new Durables self adhesive metal accents.

Now hop on over to the Heart2Heart Challenge blog and check out the other Design Team projects!  Then get busy making one of your own to add to our gallery - just use some CTMH product and link it up on your blog mentioning our site.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by today!
