You Make Me Smile


Hi everyone.  The card today is a little different style for me ... I seem to be doing that a lot lately :)  This is a CASE (copy and share everything) of Virginia Lu's beautiful card (below), that is the current challenge at Time Out!  As you can see, I kept very close to Virginia's layout and colors, but changed up the main focal point to a collection of hearts.  I used a piece of burlap to add texture under the hearts, omitting the gathered string on Virginia's card.  With all the lovely layers and embellishments, this is not a CAS card, but more of a layered card.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  And I got to use a bit of designer paper, so I'm happy about that too. :)
