LOVE With All Your Heart

Hi, Friends......

You better go get your shades because I am here with another card that uses a "failed" bubble wrap background from Darnell's NBUS challenge last week.....and this one is BRIGHT!!!! I really love these blazing colors, but the "bubble" pattern is MIA so it went in my use-later reject pile to be repurposed in a different capacity. (You are going to see quite a few of these!!! Ha.)

Again I am using one of the fabulous elements from the new Love From Me Digital Set by the amazing Julee Tilman at Verve Stamps. This is a free download (thru Feb. 15) and she has a challenge for you to enter if you use it, too! Yay!! I don't use digis very often, but I totally LOVE these. THANK YOU, Julee, for sharing this amazing set!

Other supplies used include:
Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangles die set
Spectrum Noir marker to accent the heart
Scraps from my stash of white cardstock and leftover scrap from background below.

The above card is actually the second one of a set I made. Here's the first one:

I was going for a graphic look and thought the "rebellious" angles of the panels looked youthful. Hahahahaha!!!

I used the leftover part of the bright background of this one to make the second card (above) which is more "well-behaved" and has a pink card base for a girly look. I like the top one better but I do like this original one, too. (Chalk it up to my "wild" streak, I guess! lol....)

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

  1. Oh, that background is not a fail at all! Looks perfect on your card! Pretty card! :)

  2. Wow Janis...these cards are such a pop of fun color and I love it! The black cardstock grounds all that pattern and hot pink just perfectly. The Verve digi sentiments work beautifully with the colors that you chose.

  3. SUPER looking card (shades are ON!).

  4. These are both very pretty Janis. I hate to waste "failed" projects too but once put aside for a while, eventually something beautiful will emerge. Which is what happened here for you. Just beautiful!
