All Occasion Geometric Heart

Today I spotted my Gina K. Designs set called Geo Thanks and decided to make a card using an inspirational photo from the Double D's Challenge. I also thought by using a vellum strip for the sentiment I could also add this to the Mod Squad Challenge too. I hope you like it as much as I do.




The heart was colored in with Bic Markers. But around the heart and in the inner portion I took my white paint pen and outlined it to make it pop a bit more. I used Gina K. Designs Dark Chocolate, Warm Cocoa and Sand card stock to make the layers behind the colored image and added it to a card base of Ivory. The sentiment is one from the Gina K. Designs Assorted Greetings set which was stamped with black ink onto a strip of vellum. The Sand and Warm Cocoa layers were die cut with a Cottage Cutz double stitched die and then layered to the Dark Chocolate. The last thing I added was some brown rhinestones to fill in the center of the geometric heart design.

We are in a blizzard so we are hunkering down. I don't think I will be posting any more this week as I bruised my bad foot somehow and I am in lots of pain when I walk. So I plan to take it easier tomorrow and just sit as much as I can with my feet up. This old age thing is not fun! LOL

I thank you for all your visits. I so appreciate them. So until next time, take care.

God bless,
Verna

This is just gorgeous with those great colors, and white accents with the beads! I love how it turned out! So sorry you injured your foot, but get some rest and stay warm in the wicked weather! I agree- getting old is not for sissies by any means :) Take care!

Not just another pretty Valentine! How GORGEOUS, Verna! Your simple matting in the rich earth tones really brings out the loveliness of the geometrics and rhinestones. This has got to be one of my favorite Heart Creations this season! Wonderful card. hugs, de

This looks fantastic, Verna! I do really love the colors of the mood board and you used them well on your card. The white outline was a great idea, and the rhinestones make it even more special. Glad you got to play along at Double D. I sure hope your foot feels better soon.

Brown is such a difficult color to use alone. Love the added glitz from the rhinestones. Get safely through that blizzard and I hope your foot heals well. It's not broken, is it?

Oh WOW, Verna! This is just glorious! I love the warm browns and cocoas, they actually remind me of a delicious box of Valentine Chocolates! Using the white pen does make them POP, clever technique! The layered rectangle dies look great, simply stated and elegant! The added gems are a wonderful accent as well. This is fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, Hearts Challenge, Donna, DT Member.
