~Hearts Galore~

hearts-galore.jpg        Ok, so today’s Limited Supply Challenge felt so unlimited to me… here are the details of the challenge:

Here is your challenge…to use a heart…any heart!

*Stamps: Any (bonus points for using a heart image!)
*Paper: any + red…any shade of red
*if you use a punch or die it must be heart shaped
*if you use embossing folders…they must have a heart
*if you use an accessory it MUST be heart shaped or red
*if you use designer paper…yup you guessed it, red or hearts!

Now, as opposed to yesterday’s challenge, I am NOT heart challenged.  I have hearts in all different shades and sizes and let’s face it, I have too many hearts…lol…  and for some reason, i decided to put them ALL on this card.

I cuttlebugged the background with hearts.   I punched the corners with hearts.   I used heart brads, heart ribbon, heart punches!  I went heart crazy!!!   I even drew a little heart on the sentiment tag :)   Betcha never saw so many hearts in all your life! LOL

Anyway, I managed to get the challenge done and I’m not hating all the hearts either.  Hearts are good :)

Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Boho Blossoms and Be Mine (both are My Favorite Things!)

Colors: GP White, Real Red, Doodlebug DP

Ink:  Real Red, White Craft

Accessories: heart brads, heart ribbon, heart nesties, corner punch heart, scissors, hole punch, word window punch, circle punch, white gel pen, pink ribbon, dimensionals, heart ef!

Well, TFL and have a wonderfully heartfilled day!
