Wild Hearts

Hi everyone, I was beginning to think I would never get back into it, lol.  I promised myself when I finished up my Christmas projects that I would snuggle myself in my favorite reading corner and devour 5 books, I had on my table and I did.  They were each one a treasure, I am listing my top three in order of favorites:  "Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander, MD, "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn, she peels her characters like an onion, and "Cross Roads" by Wm. Paul Young, author of "The Shack".

So onto my card, I created a mini card kit to do this one, so it will be fun to see what else I can come up with for these elements.  The background was created using an old book page and a lot of alcohol and distress inks.  I created the hearts using photoshop and a heart I sculpted from a paper clip, it was then colored with Copics and a print n cut was created using my Cameo  The bow was created with a fabric ribbon scanned in, then extracted with Photoshop and then taken to my Cameo to create a print and cut.  The word circle was created with the Cameo and computer fonts.  I then did one of my flour sack flowers and sewed a button to the center, the word circle says, "Wild hearts - create symphonies, dance in flowered fields and paint rainbows in the sky!  In this pic, the word fields is misspelled I have corrected the circle, just had not fixed the card yet, oooops.   The card blank is gray to make the the colors pop and coordinate.

I so hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that you are looking forward to a fabulous New Year. Hugs

Oh Sandi, this is just wild! Love the colors and freeform hearts and how clever to scan a real ribbon bow like that. Fun and fabulous! xxD
