cQc #228 ~ From the Heart!

To be a Valentine or not to be a Valentine...that is the question! When I saw the colors for the new challenge at ColourQ and the adorable felt heart in the inspiration photo, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to make a Valentine card or not. So I finally decided to make a card that could be used either way. 



Now even though this card has hearts I think it would be great for lots of things. Maybe an anniversary, thanks you or birthday wishes. See what I mean!

I made my focal flower with layered die cut flowers, tulle and a button. Easy peasy. The circle of stamped hearts is by Endless Creations, isn't it sweet!! This Washi tape (DeNami Design) had the perfect colors. And I think the font on my sentiment (Hero Arts) worked perfectly to pull this playful design together!


So there you go. Maybe it's a Valentine and maybe it's not ~ HA!! 
Have a splendid day friends ~Lisa

What a great idea! I have a tendency to make a card for a specific event or holiday and then somehow don't end up using it for that and kick myself for not making the card more flexible that way! I need to remember this more often! :)
Love the colors on this and what a sweet design!!!

That's what I'm saying! I have so many wonderful "valentine" products that I hate to just use them for one holiday and I hope to find ways to use them for other occasions. Your card is a PERFECT example of this, Lisa, so thank you! I love it! It is so fresh and lighthearted and impeccably made!! Hugs, Darnell
