Shaping Up

Hello All,

There is a new challenge at House of Cards! Before I reveal the challenge here is my card for tonight, enjoy!

Very minimal design.
Technique Challenge: Shaped Cards

Offset the white heart with the red base then added a
simple sentiment.
Simplicity is what this card is about. Simple red sentiment.
I am working on the inspiration card for this challenge when I stopped in my tracks. I looked at what I had and really, really liked it. I ask my daughter if I am crazy she says 'no, mom! I really like it too.'. Okay then this card is finished. Very simple design with absolutely no distractions. The shape compliments the sentiment beautifully and that is all it needed. I just wish love was this simple.

Entering Challenges:


That should do it for tonight. Off to bed to get rid of the cold.  Take care all and I am looking forward to seeing you over at House of Cards this month.. Have fun and see you soon!

All the best,
