A Heart for NBUS #9 and Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 255 & 256

Hi Again!

Couldn't resist submitting a card for Darnell's challenge called NBUS #9. I sure wanted needed to use some of my new stuff! Since Valentine's Day is upcoming, I chose pink and silver for my colors and tried to figure out how to do the hidden message technique. So, here's my take on it. Need some instructions, I think. Any suggestions? I appreciate your help! 

I took the easy way out, I'm guessing, and die cut the heart out of pink Bazzill textured paper with Heart of Hearts die from Memory Box. As I now have a million tiny pink hearts laying around, I could have made a shaker card, however that is another technique i have not mastered.

My NBUS is the Hi die (pun intended) that is part of the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Phrase Set One. Can you see it? I cut down the pink panel and glued it to a snippet of embossed white paper found in my "To Do" basket. The embossing folder is a favorite called Bouquet from We R Memory Keepers. Strips of silver cardstock accent the focal point which is just placed on a white card base. Pretty simple card. I like that. No sentiment inside yet, but the card will probably go to one of my sweet grand daughters.

After a second look at the options and rules, I need to acknowledge that my card is a total CASE of Darnell's card that she used in announcing this NBUS #9 challenge. CASEing her color, her heart and the bumpy polka dots too. Thank you so much for your inspiration. Darnell has prizes, wonderful woman that she is. So I encourage you all to enter this challenge to honor her five years of blogging! Send her a get well message too, if you can.

Since I used snippets of embossed paper and the silver strips, I am also joining Pixie's Crafty Workshop  Week 265 & 266 challenge. My first time. Fun! I've been watching for ages.

Thanks for visiting! I do  love comments and will visit you too!
