PolkaDoodles #33: Have a Heart

Hello my crafty friends. This another scheduled post. It should be Friday today and that means time for another week challenge over PolkaDoodles. This week we want you to Have A Heart. Wear your heart on your sleeve and show us some love infused projects for any occasion.

The DT is playing with 3 different themes: Classic Hearts; Heart To Heart and Love Birds. All three are available on one super value CD - Love and Cherish. But if you don't want to buy the entire bundle, each theme is available as separate single collection downloads.

For my project this week, I used papers and elements from the Heart To Heart collection. Although these collections are geared towards love and romance, you don't have to limit yourself to weddings, anniversaries or Valentine's. I made a diaorama card / window card for a friend of over 40 years. I've known her since kindergarden! Sadly, we live on different continents now and haven't met for over 20 years but we keep in touch via phone calls and emails...  and never run out of things to say to each other. I'm sending her this card because some friendship truly stand the test of time... and because she's one of a kind and I want her to know it.

This card squashes down flat - perfect for posting. And because it has to make it's way to Australia, there are no bulky embellishments - just some lightweight sheer pink ribbon and some tiny bling.

To highlight that lovely sentiment I used simple die cuts. For some texture on the patterned paper I dotted some white Liquid Pearls.

Simple colours and simple embellishments make for a lovely card for a special friend. 

Challenges for this card:
Word Art Wednesday #93 "Anything Goes" - with an uplifting sentiment
Make It Monday #153 "Anything Goes"
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #57 "Use 3 Of Something" - 3 blings
Aud Sentiments Challenge "Anything But A Birthday Card"

Artistic Inspirations Challenges #54 "Dies and / or Punches"
