I love you ...


This week I am celebrating 27 amazing years of being married to my loving husband. I have several cards that I've made over the past couple of months in anticipation of this day, but after looking at them again I thought they were too girlie. 

I decided to use this weeks CAS-ual Friday's Mostly Monochromatic Challenge along with the sketch from  Paper Players Challenge #65 to create a new card.

I chose blues tones for my card.  I turned the sketch, distressed the edges of the layers, popped on a Chipboard Heart that I stamped my heart and sentiment on, and then used distress ink to get the brown tone.

Masculine with a little bit of feminine in the mix.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ruza, loved that you changed out the focal element and moved it just a little. The blue works so fabulously on this card. So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week

Wow! I LOVE this paper! The blinged blue flower and the blue heart are the perfect touches and just "pop" off the larger heart! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!
