Bloomin' hearts

Stampfairy are sponsoring one of my favourite blogs, Papertake Weekly, this week and I'm lucky enough to be guest designing to support the new challenge of 'blooms'.

It's also the second week of this fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday which is 'hearts' which Stampfairy are also sponsoring, so I've cheated and combined the two on my card for today!

I've used a cute little image of Barry the Bear, holding a string of hearts, and also included a cherish border die cut for my hearts.

I've glittered up the flowers and Barry's wings, used Sakura Stardust gel pens on his nose and hearts and then put Glossy Accents on the top which really makes the stardust pens glisten.

Usually I only cut around shaped cards when I'm using a busy backing paper as it seems to hide any imperfection in my cutting around the scallops, but after I'd added the Cherished Border which was plain white, my unsteady hand was evident. So I covered up the wonky cutting with some Stickles which seemed to work perfectly.

I finished off with some die cut snowflakes topped with pearls, added some Viva pearl drops, and voilà ...
