I love the layered hearts ... I started with the intention of using three die cut hearts, but as I played around with the positioning, I decided I liked the negative of the bigger heart better (more contrast for the smaller heart).
To celebrate this special Anniversary, each member of the design team got to invite a friend to make a Fusion Challenge Card too. I'm so thrilled that Lauren and I got to design together again (we first met when we were on the Design Team together at Caardvarks).
So here's the Fusion Card Challenge Anniversary Inspiration.
When I finished this card, I got ready to take the remaining scrap of My Mind's Eye Good Day Sunshine Up Town 12" x 12" Paper to my overflowing scrap bin, but when I turned it over, I saw a row of adorable houses on the other side (likely the reason I bought the paper in the first place), so I decided to cut it up to make some more cards.
I trimmed the row of houses 4" wide (perfect for a long/narrow design) and all I had to do was add a Hero Arts Elegant Birthday sentiment banner to the sky (I imagined an airplane located off the right side of the card was pulling the banner).
The remaining scrap had the three little houses that were on the other side of the bridge. I paired it with a few cardstock scraps from my stash, for a similar design.
I love that both cards are funky & fun ... and super-mailable.

This week's Cardabilities Sketch reminded me of some Hexagon paper I knew I had hoarded somewhere in my stash ... now the trick was to find it.
Thankfully, it was in my first cardstock container ... it's called Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing" designed by Rhonna Farrer for My Mind's Eye ... still one of my favorite collections.
I stamped Hero Arts Heart Flourish in Charcoal ink and then stamped my Bride & Groom on the reverse side of the paper and framed it with a charcoal hexagon. I finished with a stamped *Mr. & Mrs." and a chipboard sentiment.
Tonight I'm listening to the Cardinals Baseball Game on the radio ... accompanied by the thump of bass from the DJ playing music for the Glow Run right outside our home ... the perfect time to play along with the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at Splitcoast Stampers.
I still remember the night I was sitting at my computer and discovered this vast creative community ... I signed-up immediately. I'm not exaggerating when I say, it changed my life for the better in so many ways. This challenge is brought to us by HousesBuiltofCards.
