All Heart


Happy Monday!!  It's the 15th day of Chinese New Year today. Tradition has it that the day is associated with finding a life partner - the single girls will head to the river and throw mandarin oranges into it and the single guys will be collecting these oranges further down the stream.  I don't really know if the story is true, but it's a nice one.

I have a cute heart shaped window card  (or shadow box card) to share today.  I made the card, with measurements from the Layered Heart Die-namics.  I used the sweet PI boy from "I Love You This Big" stamp set.  The boy was coloured with Copic markers and I paper-pieced his pants with some patterned paper.  The Copics markers used are : Skin - E13, E01, E000; Shoes - BG72, BG75, BG78; Sweatshirt - G00, G000, G02; Heart - R32, R35, R37, R39.  I added some Sparkly Fluff (Rockstar Red) onto the heart for some sparkle and dimension.  The sentiment was stamped on patterned paper and cut out using First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics, and I cut another strip slightly larger for the mat.  The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found II, Breeze.

Did you know that MFT has a Guest Designer contest every month?  For the month of February, the contest is Stamp Your Heart Out.  I thought I'd submit an entry this month just for fun.  I reckon my cards are always too simple but it's nice just to try.

Thanks for visiting today.
Have a great week!!
Kary

Oh I love that story about the
15th day Kary!!! You should put one of those little tidbits of legend into all your posts! (No pressure of course!) This card is so adorable, really love the color of the teal background paper, and the little guy - perfect coloring and his paper pieced pants are wonderful!
