MFP December Release & Blog Hop Info!

Hello, it's release day at Mark's Finest Papers, and they have 4 Fabulous New sets!!! I made today's card using the new Hearts, Hearts, Hearts set!

I had trouble getting the right lighting on this one, the green is really a lot deeper, specially with the sponging. I coloured the vine and flowers with copics. The background is embossed with the Victoria EF because it reminded me of the vine.

I decided to try a new product I bought quite some time ago called glass beads. It's applied with double sided tape that looks almost like packing tape. I stuck the tape to my heart, then cut it out close to the edge, peel the top layer off that's covering the tape, and cover with the tiny tiny glass beads. It adds a bit of dimension and looks different depending on the light.

I finished it off with the beautiful satin ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers, and a hat pin with a couple matching beads!

My Cousin just got married, so I'm thinking this would make a great Wedding card for this time of year!
