Love, Hearts... and a DIY flower

Thought I would pop in for a card for three challenges! Simon Says Stamp has a wedding or anniversary challenge starting today, and yesterday's Shopping our Stash (SOS) wants a make-it yourself embellishment. Meanwhile, the current Clear It Out challenge is looking for red. Having seen my snark sister Chris's paper flower on her design team entry for SOS, I was encouraged to enter with a flower of my own. 

What better for an anniversary card than a flower made of hearts? The four hearts are die-cut with the edges curled, and then layered with a small die cut flower and a glittery red brad. I'm not sure die-cutting the small heart and hanging it with twine can fully count as do-it-yourself. For the Clear it Out challenge, my stash items include the patterned papers, the brad, and the small flower and label dies.

Supplies: white & Bazzill textured red cardstock, Echo Park Yours Truly & Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Lucky You patterned paper, Unity Love stamp, versamark ink, Ranger rich red embossing powder, QuicKutz nesting heart & Spellbinders circle, labels 4, Creative Carnations & Charmed I'm Sure dies, Queen & Co. glitter red brad, peppermint Divine Twine, Creative Memories corner-rounding punch

Pin It Now!

I think the hanging heart counts! I love the font of that love stamp - and this layout! Too cool :)
