31 Days of Card Making {Day 17} – All Things Grow With Love

I used the Viva La Verve October Week 3 sketch for today’s card (the sketch is by Maureen Plut):

I went digging through my patterned papers for this one, and found some fabulous ones!  (In my opinion, anyway.) šŸ˜‰

I was so excited Saturday when my new Verve stamps & dies showed up on my doorstep.  So I immediately broke open my new Bloom & Grow stamp set and my new Jotted Heart die for this one.

For the heart, I used the chipboard accents technique that I learned from the Make It Monday tutorial a few weeks ago.  The top layer is the same red cardstock as the circle mat, sparkled up with some coordinating red glitter.  I wasn’t sure if glitter was called for on this card, but I couldn’t resist.  I thought I heard a voice calling me, and I thought it was saying, “Use some glitter, use some glitter!”  So I did!

Could be that I’m just starting to hear voices, though.  In my old age. (hee hee)

Thanks for stopping by today. šŸ˜‰
