Roses are blue

Hey everyone, hope you're having a good weekend.
Football is on today, so I managed to sneak up into my craftroom
and make a card for the Fusion Challenge.

 I took my inspiration from the photo, using overlapping hearts and a flower.

I guess this is what you might call a  'fake' shaker card.
The sequins are stuck down, inside the heart cut out, and there's no acetate layer.
It kinda gives the appearence of a shaker card, with non of the fuss...   lol**

I'm not sure I'm terribly happy with the sentiment like that.
I really wanted to add a small banner, but my memento ink didn't want to play ball.
It just came out all patchy and blotchy.
So I ended up using a printed sentiment layered up on card.

DP - GCD Studios, Ella Blue
Flower - Clearly Besotted Stamps & Dies, Sweet Rose
Nestie Heart Dies
Ink - VersaColor Turquoise, Memento Toffee Crunch
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat Digi

Hi Caroline,
I love your beautiful card with it's perfectly placed sentiment!

My hubby is also football mad but as you say - perfect time to craft for us.

I hope that you don't mind me asking but is your GCD Studios Ella Blue pad new or an old one only I know of another blog buddy who would love to buy one?

Hope you have a fab weekend.

Thank you so much for your reply Caroline - most kind of you.

I did think that it must be an old one and I know that they are very hard to find now.

I will forward your reply to my friend - thanks again.

Great looking card. My Memento does that on some cardstock too! It's VERY naughty.
