Basic Grey Challenge - Hearts

As promised to myself I'm sticking to my challenge-a-day schedule.


Here's the brief from the Basic Grey challenge blog...

As today is a very special day, we would like you to get all loved up in your creations and show us some hearts, it can be any size and any quantity of hearts you wish, and also not forgetting to use at least one item from Basic Grey somewhere on your creation
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I bought some new digital templates for my Silhouette craft cutter the other day and I've been having a play. One of the shapes reminded me of a tag I'd seen on someones blog months ago and I've based this card on the inspiration gained from that, I'm afraid I can't remember who's blog it was so I can't give proper credit.

So, here's what I came up with....


I'm really pleased with this and I have a feeling you'll be seeing more like this from me. I wondered whether I should fill that blank space but I kind of like it as it is - uncluttered.
The papers are from my BG Ambrosia 6X6 pad, aren't they gorgeous!

I decided to have my hearts floating out of the folded down corner.

This leaf was also cut on my Silhouette, it sure has been well used recently.

The image - if you don't already know☺ is from the Holly and Madison download collection.

Than you for looking, I'm off to see all the other challenge entries.xx

Wow what a stunning card! All the details in are amazing! I wish I had a Sillouette or I should say they made it more compatible with Macs. I'm still holding out hope. But what an awesome job you did!! Thanks for playing at Basic Grey Challenges this week!
