Hearts of three


It is time for another challenge at
Scrap From Your Heart

The theme this month is
Valentine or Mother's Day.

For my card, I'm using and stamp and die set from My Favorite Things.  The front panel is dark purple cs and I stamped the two outer hearts with white embossing powder.  The middle heart is a shaker filled with goodies in the same color scheme.
The outer piece is dry embossed with a Darice folder and then sponged over with Mermaid Lagoon distress ink to bring it out a bit.
The purple tag was cut from the same purple as the front panel.  The puffy XO and heart stickers are from the Simon Says store (can't recall the branding) 
All of this was added to a top fold lavender cs base.
Happy valentines.
I hope you have fun playing along with the challenge.  Good Luck

I cut the side panel with black cs and then edge it with a oldie punch from Fiskars with that scalloped edge.  I cut the heart from deep red cs and the heart die from Spellbinders Double Scrolled Heart.  I cut another one in black cs to back it.  The flag is just a piece of scrap edged with Fired Brick distress ink.
The sentiment was stamped with a rubber by Hampton Arts with white embossing powder
