This week the challenge is 'Sweethearts' over at the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge, please come along and play :)
Mango Treasures textured paper from Paper Temptress

I never grow tired of doing art journal style pillow boxes and when I saw this paper I could see this design almost immediately. The orange base was actually much sturdier than I thought it would be and took the paint so well. 

I used Tim Holtz Distress Paints in Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed and just dabbed randomly on the card, then sprayed with some water to blend. I love the vibrancy of this, the pink and yellow blended beautifully with the orange paper. 

I used the heart stamp from the Tim Holtz Urban Chic set and his Hearts Movers and Shapers. 

Heart Balloons from StitchyBear Digital Outlet

CAS design for this card, using a blend of red copic markers. Drew the boarder in the same squiggly style. Such a brilliantly quick style to do if you're in a hurry or forget to do a card for Valentines Day! :)

All you have to do is use a heart somewhere on your creation. Easy Peasy...
