Blowin' Bubble Hearts

(I have changed the link for my Facebook page button on the right sidebar
 to connect with my new Facebook page.  I'd love it if you would like my
 page.  It is strictly for my card and other papercrafting projects.)

     After missing making my Mo's Digital Pencil card last week I was chomping at the bit to get busy on this weeks challenge.  Our lovely Lis has given us a theme of "Love is...." which is perfect for Valentine's Day tomorrow or any other lovey dovey time you might need to show someone you care.
     The DT has no idea what each other are going to do for our cards until we upload them for Pat and it looks like this pair of bubble blowers was really popular among us.  Franz and I seem to have a bit of am ESP or telepathy thing going cause we've chosen the same image several times, but we weren't the only ones this week.  I'm sure you'll love them all though cause each one is beautiful and unique.  The image is called "Bubble Heart" and can be found in Mo's store along with lots of great images for all occasions.
     I don't have a large die cutting machine, just a Cuttlebug, so I can't use those larger sized dies for cool card shapes.  I decided to try to improvise and put my punches to work for me and created a deco edge on the sides of the card base.  Layers, and my layers, a little piece of doily and some handcut rolled roses for embellishment.
     Here's the tag that slides in behind the image panel.

     And here is their closeup.

Already like the new fb page so check that one off and I LOVE this card! Of course your coloring is amazing but what really caught my eye were your roses, they have such a soft edge to them. Now I am gonna have to get my dies out and make some too, you are such an enabler! Love the fancy edges, never thought to try that with a punch but it looks fabulous. Can't wait to hear your news!
