|Gorgeous Card by Birgit|
Now, her layout and use of the beads really appealed to me, so I did a CASE (copy and steal everything) of Birgit's beautiful creation, with only minor changes.
My version of Birgit's card is, of course, whiter, because, you know, I'm me. But the layout and all those heart-shaped gems would not have happened without Birgit's card for inspiration.
I chose the swirly heart from Papertrey's Heart Prints set because it's my favorite and it added white into the heart design, which seemed like a good idea for unifying such a simply colored card. Note how Birgit allows some white to peek out around the leaf on her layers...same idea. Also, the swirls on the stamp add a LOT of movement, which is almost always a great thing in a design.
The stamp set is designed to match a punch, which is great for me since I don't have a die cut machine but do have the punch.
All those little heart-shaped rhinestones are simply adorable, lined up both horizontally and vertically.
And I just need to say that my husband bought me some CuddlDuds for Christmas, and I couldn't be cozier or warmer. If you are always cold in the winter, these things are amazing. Just sayin' 'cause I'm a happy person, and no compensation coming my way for it.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
