This week's challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog is to use HEARTS on your House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hopper card. This adorable Gruffies stamp, titled Hanging on for Dear Life, features the Gruffies bears Booda and Biggly. The challenge worked perfectly for me to make a Valentine for my mister. This is how I feel when riding behind the mister on his motorcycle, i.e. "hanging on for dear life." (tee hee hee)
I used one of my new paper piercing stencils/embossing dies from Spellbinders which has the lovely paper pierced swirls and the embossed heart in the center. The pierced swirls seemed appropriate to represent the motorcycle exhaust.
I love making motorcycle themed cards for the mister but try to add my personal touch of femininity with ribbons, glitz and glitter.
The image is colored with copic markers and I used a variety of gem stones that were in my stash from years ago (manufacturer unknown). The red heart in the center of the white grosgrain bow is actually a little plastic button. I cut the shank of and adhered it to the ribbon.
Woo hoo...I have the mister's card all ready a week early! Check out other House Mouse and Friends cards over at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge.
