Classy Hearts

Today I want to share a "mistake" with you.  Yes, a mistake.  Ok... to be honest... I was confused.  But does that REALLY surprise you??? Hee Hee  About two weeks ago Tami Mayberry asked me to help her promote her stamp set, "Happy Hearts" for the Color Challenge Throwdown.  I was, of course, thrilled she asked! 

I wanted to do something really different with her stamps that I hadn't seen before.  Well.. one thing I hadn't seen a lot of was the hearts used in a mostly black and white and a "classy" design.  I was just so thrilled to think of this and I set down to do it.  Well... duhhh... I had to follow the COLOR challenge. LOL  Ummmm black and white was NOT in the scheme of things. HA!

So... I decided... why not send the card to Tami as a "thank you" for allowing me to help her promote her set!

I stamped the small hearts with flourishes in black on Gina K's Pure Luxury Layering Weight Ivory Card Stock.  I used my scalloped heart Nestabilities and airbrushed some red along the edges before removing the Nestie border.  I also punched a few red hearts and lined them along the edges only of each black flourished stamped heart. 

I took one of those and added button holes to it and attached it to the blow as a "fake" button.

I love how this card turned out and I hope Tami liked receiving it as well.  It was definitely a fun challenge but sometimes I get an idea and get ahead of myself. Hee Hee

Have a great day!! *smile*

Love the "mistake", it is a great card in fabulous colors even if they were the wrong colors.
