Creative Challenges

Did you know that Close To My Heart issues weekly challenges?  I've played along for a few, and over the weekend I decided I would play along with the latest challenge.

The challenge was to use the Heartstrings Paper.  I really love this paper, it has a very strong Valentine's/Love theme, making it good for Weddings, Showers, Anniversaries and of course Valentine's.

I wanted to try to create something that didn't fit in those categories. Here is my creation.

I used Hollyhock Cardstock for my base, and then layered a piece of the Heartstrings paper, adding a layer of Arrow Washi tape across the top.  The sentiment is from the Operation Smile stamp set, You're the Bomb (C1617) which retires at the end of March.  I stamped it in Cranberry, Lagoon, 2nd generation Hollyhock and Black Ink.  The sentiment is layered on a piece of Lagoon cardstock, and I added 2 flags of Teal Shimmer trim, and some sequins which appears in the next addition of  Seasonal Expressions available April 1st.

You can find CTMH's challenges here.
