Sometimes my husband has some great ideas



I promised myself yet again that I wouldn't make another card, it was going to be an evening of watching TV but yet again it just didn't happen. I started working on this card after seeing a few challenges that I wanted to take part in, mind you I was meant to be going to bed early this evening but I can leave that for another night. For the life of me I couldn't think of a sentiment for this card and low and  behold when I asked my husband he came up with something that was just perfect for this card.

I printed the hearts on strings on open office, the two birds is a digital image and the mustard hearts have been punched out and stuck on with dimensional foam, the sentiment was computer generated. I am very happy that my idea came together and that I was able to make this card. I promise to stop making love themed cards very soon, I seem to be on a roll at the moment.

The challenges I have included-
ColourQ-#121
Lily Pad-Virginia's View Challenge #1
Paper Issues-All we need is love
Moxie Fab-Punches challenge

I was chosen as one of the Colour Queen Courtiers for this card over at ColourQ
