Gotta get a heart in there somewhere!

I'm still making cards like it's going out of fashion :-)  I'm quite enjoying myself and HB is happy cos I don't moan about him watching programmes on Discovery about deep sea fishing, driving across ice, oil rigs etc etc.

Tonights card is one of a pair, and I'll show you the second one tomorrow (even though that is a bit of a cheat cos they are really similar :-)

Today I have used Daydreaming Ruby - I love her coloured in like this in a really bold red dress - I'm getting there with colouring the log she's sitting on as well and went a bit loopy with the blender pen but I think it looks OK.  I've then Glamour Dusted her wings and added glossy accents to her hair slide and the ladybird.

I'm entering her for Paperplay challenge week 24 - Something Old - the lacy ribbon and the heart shaped brads have been sitting in my stash for EVER, none of the papers are new and were all were off cuts from some long ago project, the stamp that I've used round the edge of Ruby was one of the first mini stamp sets I bought for about 99p and the chalkeye is so old I had to squidge it to get it to put enough colour on the stamp!!  So on that basis I think I fulfilled the criteria OK :-)

I am also entering her for Alphabet Challenge - H is for Hearts due to the heart shaped brads and the ribbon has got little hearts all the way through it
