Fred She Said Challenge #2

Hi everyone! It's time for the second (2) Fred She Said Challenge. Be sure to hop on over to the Fred She Said Challenge blog and join us for this fun challenge. You can enter you card there for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Fred She Said Store.

Our challenge for this month is since it is the month of LOVE to create a card with at least three Hearts on it! You must use a Fred She Said image. If you don't have one you can find Freebies here!

Here is mine!

My card is made with the new Corner Rose image from the Fred She Said Store that you can find here. I colored my image with pencils and gamsol. After that, I sponged Rangers Tea Dye distress ink all over the flower. I pop dotted the flower three times and outlined it in stickles. For my three hearts, I did three layers of the spellbinders die cut hearts in the middle.

I continued the image on the inside of my card. The corner elements are another spellbinders die called Illumination Grand Borderabilities that I cut apart and used on my corners and various other embellishing elements. I ripped and distress inked my papers....boy that was a bunch of fun. Talk about getting your frustrations out...just go rip up some papers...not only will you feel better, it looks pretty nice too!!! LOL

Won't you join us over at the Fred She Said Challenge Blog for this month's challenge? We would love to have you join us and put your entry in for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Fred She Said Store.
