Just A Note Card

Hello, my friends!
I received my latest Simon Says Stamp Card Kit a few days ago, and today I was finally able to make something new for you to look at! Since it's a card kit...I made a card! :o)

I used the black card base along with the lovely papers from the kit. The  teal color isn't showing very well on my computer but it's a really pretty color. The heart was lots of fun to make! I used the musical heart image from the stamp set, stamped out five of them, and then fussy cut around them. I scored all five of them down the center and then adhered them to each other on the one side, leaving the last two opposite sides free. I hand cut the black heart for a base. After wrapping and tying the baker's twine around the center of the heart, I adhered all of it to the black base heart. Then I layered the heart on top of the teal papers and popped that layer up on the black card base. I added the sentiment on another teal die cut piece and popped that up too. After adding pearls from me stash, my card was complete! I hope you like it! :o)

Here's a close-up of the heart:

Nancy, what you've done with the hearts is so pleasant to the eye plus the pearls, and that faint hint of music. Personally black is a faavorite with me.
Thank you for sharing it with us at WAW.

Another wonderful creation ! The hearts are amazing ,a fantastic way to use the twine! The sentiment looks so good on the label too and the colours are so good together.All adds up to a very beautiful card.
I have actually got two pages to post but haven't had any good light to photograph them! Will have to learn how to use my camera properly now I'm here as sunshine seems to be in short supply!
