Love Deeply: Multi-Challenge Card

I have a small confession to make. In the past few weeks, I’ve become hooked on design challenges! It’s been so much fun to visit different blogs, delight in the smorgasboard of ideas set before me, and choose a few to participate in (there’s never enough time to do them all!) I love sharing my favorites finds. Recently, I divided my Challenge Links into sub-categories to make them easier to navigate. Please check them out when you have a moment!
Today, I’d like to share my Love Deeply card, which I am entering into five challenges:

Belli Challenge #83: Hearts – Requires hearts. 

Corosive Challenge #49: All You Need Is Love – Requires a love theme.

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #3: Hearts – Requires hearts.

Paper Sundaes Third Challenge – Requires a Valentine’s theme.

Sunday Stampers Week 89: Anyone Who Had A Heart – Requires hearts and stamping.

For the Paper Sundaes Valentine’s theme, I chose to go vintage and lay the foundation with pretty pink polka-dot paper (how’s that for a tongue twister!) from CTMH’s beautiful Notebook line. I then dug through a ton of stamps until I found the perfect one for my card (which, as is frequently the case, was dictated in part by the size of the white scrap paper I had sitting on my desk!) I stamped the beautiful sentiment – which fulfills the love theme requirement for Corosive Challenge 49 and the stamping requirement for Sunday Stampers – in CTMH Black Archival Ink using a stamp from CTMH’s D1368 Tinkled Pink My Acrylix Stamp Set.  I offset the sentiment with another sheet of double-sided CTMH Notebook paper, and lightly distressed the white paper using CTMH Bamboo and Baby Pink ink pads.

To comply with the Belli , Fussy and Fancy and Sunday Stampers heart requirements, I added two chipboard hearts that I custom-colored with various inks.  I distressed the edges with black chalk ink, and added pretty pink lace from my newly organized lace box (I’ll be sharing this soon!) and a lovely handmade paper flower, compliments of Jennifer from Random Vintage Finds!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing today’s card with me! If you haven’t already done so, be sure to stop by my One World One Heart giveaway and register for a chance to win a very special prize!

Have a happy and creative week!
