Love You

Hello!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a great day!! Today i am sharing a card i made for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Design Team Call. I've had the idea for this card kickin' around my head for awhile and i figure now was a good time to make it happen! I work retail and kids cloths that i am around a lot have had these shirts with different icons, hearts, stars, peace sign etc. Each one was covered in sequins and i thought it turn into a great card!

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the challenge being hearts!!
I started by die cutting a big heart. I added liquid glue a little bit at a time and added the sequins, kind of overlapping them a little. The heart used a lot of sequins, so its a great way to use up some if you like or as i was doing it, though smaller images with smaller sequins would work great too!!

Once i had everything adhered i set it aside to dry real good! Later i came back and manipulated the sequins to make sure they were all attached good! The glue made the heart warp a little, so i die cut another heart and added it to the back of the sequin heart with double sided tape.

Next i stamped the cute elephant image from Penny Black and colored him and his heart balloon with copics, then i cut him out (isn't he so cute?!?!). I cut a circle from black card stock and then embossed in white the sentiment love you.
Last it was just a matter of adhering the heart, the circle and the elephant to a white card base. Oh i also rounded the corners of the card base.
