Heart 2 Heart Challenge Handmade Pun Fun Card

I took a few moments away from my prep work for the September 29th Operation Smile Crop to make a card for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  The challenge was to make a card that is "big."  So, I made a 6 x 6 card featuring Dakota and one of the cute new stamp sets called Pun Fun (C1505.)
Despite its size, this is a simple card.  It is done on a Black base with Whisper as the side strip.  One of the fun things about this card is that the basic sketch is actually taken from the new Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 how to book.  I have always enjoyed working with "sketches."  A sketch is actually a skeleton drawing from which you build your card.  Make It From Your Heart is filled with both scrapbook and card sketches.  All new and all very interesting.  It is a soft cover magazine style book and for $7.95 it can't be beat.  Hop over to my website and get one for yourself.

Just a couple more fun things about this card...the lemons were colored using my water color pencils and blended with the Blending Pen...quick and easy.  The sparkly silver strip is "Silver Shimmer Trim" (Z1799.)  I actually got the roll while at Convention and this was the first time I used it.  It is great...with adhesive on the back.  Really easy to use.  The buttons are also from one of the CTMH embellishment kits and instead of threading the holes, I added sparkles to hide the holes.  Just something a little different.

Don't forget to check out the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week for more creations featuring Close To My Heart products.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
