DCM Red + White Challenge + Caardvarks Valentines Challenge
The challenge at DCM this week is to use red and white on your card. I found this quite hard as I really don't like red but I came up with this. The heart stamp is from Magnolia and I tied some raffia around it and added 3 gems. It's only an A7 card but I quite like making mini cards. I have since doodled round the edge of the small piece of white card and it looks so much better, might get another pic of it later.
Wow I just realised I have made 2 cards today and not had my Prismacolors out at all, this has got to be a first for me!!!
This morning I saw the challenge at Caardvarks was to make a Valentines card so I'm going to enter this one as I only need 1 Valentines card and I've made that already. Hubby says he's not going to make me one, he'll send me this one instead - I will charge him for it though!!
