A side opening A5

Crafty Ann's challenge 7 is Metallic...colours, paper, embellishments etc
and I have used
Carols Sketch 19
Fussy & Fancy challenge 3 - is Hearts
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 68 - Hearts
Polka Doodles challenge 4 - is also Hearts

For a change, I have followed the sketch quite accurately :-) although I've yet to add a sentiment

The main metal element is the biggest heart. It is made from Metal Magic stamped with black stazon. I used one of the lovely Penny Black stamps I received in Kym's blog candy.
You can visit Kym here and see her latest wonderful display of cards for the Haiti Earthquake Appeal.

The hearts are raised with foam pads and two have a glittery edge.

Papers - Easter Joy from Studio Girls
Heart - Metal Magic
Stamp - Penny Black heart
Gold Mirri card, ribbon and flower from stash

Stop Press - I am thrilled to say that I have been invited by Crafty Ann to be a guest designer along with Linda for two challenges in March. Definitely chuffed but I am also very nervous too,

Thank you for stopping :-)
