Dasa's 90-Minute Scramble


Hello, everyone!  This is my first attempt at posting on my own.  So, I hope it goes through.  Sweet Brenda helped me with my first post last Sunday, while I visited her for a wonderful crafty weekend with her, Lisa, Trinh, and Vera.

I made this card for Dasa's 90-Minute Scramble today, at the Hero Arts Flickr Group.  I have not been feeling well, and have not had much energy to create.  So, this was the perfect opportunity to attempt to create something.  I love using Kraft-colored cardstock, kettle copper embossing powder, and hearts.
Tina created a beautiful card for my Mom with a burlap heart, so her card was my inspiration for this card.
(I wish I knew how to link to her card and blog.  I'll try to figure it out sometime soon.  HELP, Brenda!)

Thanks for visiting my blog today, and for your sweet comments!

Love the layers. The embossed background looks great with the ribbon, heart and gem.

Such a sweet card with the shaped edge. Love the copper embossing - makes such a great bg for the beautiful heart. And you finished the card with the ribbon and shiny embelishment in such a classy way.
