My Heart is With You

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, Teri Anderson (one of my all-time favorite card designers and one of Paper Crafts Magazine Go-To-Gals) issued this challenge on Twitter:

@GoToGalTeri Twitter friends card making challenge wanters: I left you hanging. ;) I challenge you to make a card with 23 buttons, brads or gems on it.

I love that she chose 23 and not some even number. I used 23 rhinestones on the hearts. I was lucky enough to meet Teri back in January at the CHA Supershow in Anaheim. I've admired her work for a long time, so it was great to talk to her.

Around the time Teri issued the challenge, I saw this cake on Bakerella's website. Oh my, doesn't this cake look amazing! I got my inspiration for the design of my card from her cake.

I wish I would left the sentiment off the front of the card. I should've stamped it on the inside. Oh well.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is jaw dropping gorgeous! I love the splash of pink and all of the rhinestones. At first I thought you used an embossing folder, but then I looked closer and saw all the punched out hearts. SO FAB!!! Love how you used all the gems for the challenge - brilliant!

Dude. First of all, how much am I paying you to be my friend, A? 'Cause you know I am definitely not paying you enough. ;)

I love the card.
It's so dang pretty... and perfect.
It's the kind of card I wish I made.

Two thumbs up in a "get jiggy with it" formation!
