Hi everyone! As I mentioned the other day I'm currently hosting a card swap in which we were to case and CAS card in the Splitcoast gallery and I decided to create a card for my swap. This is the card that I decided to case.

I really like the way Deb incorporated the punched hearts into the stamped image. Mine didn't turn out as nicely as hers did, but I'm still happy with my results. I stamped the image and then I colored it using my SU markers. Next, I punched a few small hearts using my SU heart to heart punch and then I glued the hearts over the flower image and in the center of the O.

I added my background decorative paper. Next, I layered a piece of white ribbon onto my wider pink ribbon and then I placed that on the background of my card. I sort of liked that my card doesn't have a knot or bow; it makes for easier mailing with less postage.

And finally just along the bottom of my card I've added a few rows of paper piercing using my SU mat pack and paper piercing tool.

Thanks to you all for being so patient with me these past few weeks while I've been MIA! Have a great rest of the day!

Great case! Love how you recreated the card in pinks (my favorite color!). I'm trying to finish up my cards for the swap, too! There is a lot of fabulous inspiration out there. :)
