Hello Folks time to play a new game with the Cardmadfairy! There were some FABULOUS entries for the Ribbons and Bows challenge and I have had a truly inspirational tour of Blogland.
This time guess what we are asking for!  Ok not too hard to guess, it is the time of year when our thoughts turn to affairs of the heart is it not? So we are asking you to use hearts on your project. Jenni has some beautiful heart images which you can find here. The design team have made some fabulous cards with them which we hope will inspire you.
My card has actually got three different Cardmadfairy images on it! The heart which is a freebee, the banners and the bird.
I had it in my mind I wanted to create the idea of the banners you see at a street party so I printed the image in different sizes and layered them up. I was going to leave the background white but  I got a free set of papers with a magazine and the sky paper jumped out at me. I wasn't sure what to do with the bottom half and I was going through my various paper pads and this one put me in mind of a garden wall with some wintry flowers in front of it which really liked with the heart . Lastly I added the little bird on the heart which again is layered to give it a 3D effect.
The hearts are coloured with distress ink and covered with glossy accents.
Entering these challenges. Red,white and black Make a card for someone special (my lovely husband) Anything goes Hearts Be my valentine Valentine's day Always anything goes Hearts/Valentines Use a Digi Love and hearts
