Be Mine

***Hi everyone ~  I've been concerned over the past several days because I haven't received email messages for many of your Blog posts...well, suddenly the light went on, and I checked my 'Spam Folder', and lo and behold...there they are! Please forgive me if I haven't visited your blog...I promise to get caught up asap!
My sincere apologies to all!


This week, the Less Is More Challenge Blog is celebrating their 3rd birthday, and the theme for the current challenge is 'Rainbow’. Adding to the fun, the code word this week at Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog is 'Love’.  So, being the 'Challenge Junkie’ that I am, my card is a rainbow of love in the form of hearts! I would also like to enter this card into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge for the theme 'Over the Edge'.

 


Here's a close-up of all the shine on the heart and sparkle on the die cut sentiment:

 
I die cut the banner dies in white, then colored a panel behind it with Copics, which creates a very subtle rainbow, but I think the hearts look pretty with bits of color in 'Rainbow Formation' - lol! I used glitter paper for the word ‘Be’, silver embossing powder for 'mine', and coated the heart with glossy accents. I hoped by using vellum for the banner, that the rainbow panel would stand out a bit more.


Thank you so much for stopping by,  I hope everyone is having a great weekend ~ Take care,
Barb

Barb, this is SOOOOO beautiful! What a wonderful design! I haven't ready the other comments, so maybe someone already told you this, but you could edit your post and add the CAS-ual Fridays challenge of "over the edge!" Your sensational card would work there, too! Hugs, Darnell
