White on white hearts

Hello everyone. I'm back with a birthday card for our granddaughter for her 19th birthday.
The design was inspired by a card by Laura Bassen for the recent SSS release, where she used different sized hearts in different colours.

I thought it would be fun to use the design for a white card and added interest and texture using different embossing folders. I also changed the orientation to a landscape design. For my card base I used hammered cardstock, but I had trouble catching all of the texture in my photograph. The Dutch sentiments and coordinating die is by Carlijn Design.

I'm linking up my card at:

Pinks for the January CCC reveal

Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping by.
It's the 2nd of the month, which means it's time to reveal all of the cards that were exchanged in the Card Chain Challenge this past month. 

This month, my card went to Joanne in the UK. I decided to use both the sketch and the colours.

I started by creating my pink front panel by combining cardstock in two shades of pinks and then did some ink-blending over it use a NBUS stencil. I left the packaging somewhere out of sight, but I think it's from Stamperia. I finished with a strip of the brighter pink and stamped the sentiment. To finish off, I stamped a small butterfly in the top left corner.

There is still a few days left to sign up for the upcoming February exchange at the Card Chain Challenge blog. And if you sign up right away, you will be sending a card to me! Wouldn't that be fun?!

I was thrilled to see that one of my long-time followers, Gail of What's Normal, decided to join the fun next month. Yay!
