Hearts

Hello again everyone and a big welcome to all my new followers, I'm very happy to have you here and hope you 'll like what you see. Here's one I finished late last night. This will be hubby's Valentine card - just hope he doesn't expect me to dress this way any time soon lol!!!


I was very lucky to win some Crafty Purple Frog digi decoupage sheets earlier this month. They're gorgeous and I couldn't wait to use them. The image is printed onto ice blue decoupage paper and the dimension on the layers is fabulous. The backing paper is from the candy I won the other day. I've used a new PATP heart punch for the backing mat and a Spellbinders nestie die for the image mat. Card is finished with a ribbon bow, heart button, flowers, some gems and some punch waste. The inside has been decorated to match.
