love you ...

Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest Addicted to CAS challenge.  Each challenge has a code word to inspire your creations.

It's my turn to be in charge of this challenge (each DT member is taking a turn) ... and I picked this love-ly code word!

will be awarded to the CAS PERFECTIONIST
(please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Stamps:  Short & Sweet (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Adorning Accents embossing folder (Sizzix), heart punch, Sprinkles - Chili Hearts 6mm (Annabelle Stamps), glue, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and dimensionals

To make the heart:  I punched a heart from thick white cardstock and then hand-cut around the punched shape, creating a thin (about 1/8") heart frame.  I glued on the Chili Heart Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps) around the frame and then glued it onto my card front, over top of the heart embossed border.

Here's a close-up of the heart, which also shows more detail of the heart embossing in the background.  LOVE these pretty red heart Sprinkles.

I hope you'll join in on the fun challenge at Addicted to CAS.  Come and check out the wonderful samples from the other Design Team members.
