Card Design: From the Heart Stamps February Challenge

http://fromtheheartstamps.com/community/blog/
It is time to post my project for the February, From the Heart Stamps (FTHS) progressive stamp of the month challenge.  I was a bit worried I wasn't going to get it done but thankfully I pulled it off with a couple days to spare.

In order to enter the progressive challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  While you are there, have a look around.  They have some really awesome images.

Here are my card and details.  I hope I haven't forgotten anything important...

General Information:

  • To help inspire you, I have created a simple, love you card.  Although this one definitely has a humourous touch.  Another one to add to the pile I'm making for the hubs this year, just because, and this month's challenge provided me with the perfect opportunity to continue.  So, on cue...

FRONT
Digital Image Details: 
  • The image on the front,  Loves Me Birdbrain, is available for purchase over at From the Heart Stamps. Click HERE or on the watermarks below to go to its location in the store. It was coloured in with Copic Markers and coloured pencils for the smaller objects and grass.
  • If you missed out, you can still play along with the challenge by purchasing the image. Then you can enter the challenge and receive next month’s digi free. Alternatively, if you spend $10 in the From The Heart Stamps store this month, you'll receive the image for free.  To find the special code you need, be sure to check out the original post by clicking HERE.

OVERALL
Paper Products:
 
  • Card, image and sentiment bases: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.

Challenges I am hoping to enter: 
Others I might get it into...

My final progressive card is done for the month.  Just a couple more projects and posts to go to fulfill DT duties and then the new challenges start at both The 12 Months of Christmas AND Path of Positivity.  Goodness it is going to be a busy few days.  Wish me luck!
 
Until next time,
