"Beeting" Heart

Hi there!

everyone getting some challenges done? There are so, so many good ones to get in on this week! I am combining two on this card. I have used a piece of chipboard (under the heart on flower shape on chipboard) and that counts for one of the Verve challenges (VSJAN10C) to use a piece of chipboard. The other challenge is another that I really, really wanted to participate in when I saw it yesterday morning on the MoxieFabWorld blog. Cath has challenged us to create a "complete" card or inside and out. I must admit, I do not finish the insides of my cards, but boy oh boy, this was fun! My idea came from this great DCWD Farmer's Market paper I had with beautiful, richly textured and coloured beets and beet greens. I thought of making a valentine showing a heart on the front with "my" beside it, and then the sentiment inside reads Beets For You with a cute Lockhart stamp (it's actually a radish stamp, but let's please pretend it to be beets) The strip of paper on the front of the card is the Farmer's Market paper and the card base is SU Always Artichoke. The border punch is MS and these ivory seed beads were purchased at Hobby Lobby some time last year. The scored straight lines on the front and inside were made with my scoring blade and the rounded zig zag is a CB EF strip. I shaded the beets using Copics and cut them out and placed on a pop dot. A little goofy for my style...but that's the great thing with challenges isn't it? Gets you thinking differently and a little out of your comfort zone.

Thanks for peeking in today.
