VALENTINE HEART PEGGY LOVES VINTAGE





Good morning
There's a contest going on over at Peggy loves Vintage blog! All you have to do is create something with the beautiful free vintage image Peggy has on her blog, you have until 12th February to enter and there is a prize for the winner too! Just leave a comment and link your creation on the post with the free download.
I made a card and a little heart box filled with little love heart candies.
My card is 6x6" and backing paper is Pink Petticoat stripe download.I thought that stripes were in keeping with the gorgeous free vintage heart image. The heart is printed out twice for the card and I fussy cut it once then just cut the heart out which is popped and embossed with one of my new Romance CB folders love hearts (hence the love heart candies too match!) The sentiment is computer generated in blue, font is Bauhaus Script and hearts are Cheri font printed on white and layered on pink card that has been punched with my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. An organza and satin pink ribbons to finish off. The box is a paper mache box from Hobbycraft which I painted with pink acrylic paint then covered the sides with the striped paper and narrow pink silk ribbon. I cut the heart three times for the box and fussy cut twice for the base and lid and the heart once which I again embossed and added some ribbon.
I hope you can join in the contest over at Peggy's blog and don't forget to pick up your gorgeous free heart image and have a look at Peggy's other gorgeous vintage images too!
I am also entering this card and box over at By The Cute and Girly Challenge which is the theme of love this month
Thanks for looking and have a lovely day
