Simply Create Too - Challenge 30 Midway Extra - Valentine Day / Hearts

It's time for the midway extra post to help you with some extra inspiration for the current Simply Create Too challenge which is:

Valentine Day / Hearts

I've used some wonderful papers from the new Funky Hand download - Just For Jen and for every purchase £1 will be donated to Cancer Research.  There are lots of patterned papers in the collection - greys and pinks but I've only used one of the 'solid' pinks and printed directly onto my cardstock.

I found a fab template from Belles Printables and I adapted it slightly and layered the heart.

I've added liquid pearl dots around the edge of the heart and then raided my button stash!  I've also added some clear gems - I think they would be termed dew drops - which were donated by my cousin Claire after her Wedding last year!

Good luck with the challenge!
