5 for 5 Blog Event: Valentine's | Day 1

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all doing well and had a great weekend. I hunkered down and finished some projects - deadlines can be quite motivating! It was a perfect weekend for crafting since we had a mild snow/rain storm on Saturday - mild for New England that is! We have been lucky so far this winter - however that is due to change today and into Tuesday ... we're always on our toes!!  
I have a new crafty endeavor I'm very excited about and it starts today! I want to welcome you to a new Blog Event  - "5 for 5"! A few designers, 5 to be exact, will create Holiday Inspired projects for, you guessed it, 5 days in a row! Each day our 5 Designers will post one Holiday Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the blogs listed below and leave a comment.
So, without further ado, Welcome to Day 1 of our 5 for 5 Blog Event! This month's event runs from January 26th (today) until January 30th and is based on Valentine's Day.


Today our theme is "Hearts". I created a simple square card (4.5 x 4.5) by layering some older papers from My Mind's Eye "Cupid's Arrow" collection. I used the heart on the back of the "Confetti Hearts Foiled Paper" as the focus of the card.


I embossed the sentiment "Be Mine, Valentine" with gold embossing powder.


To add more gold I spattered some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold onto the card - masking off the heart to keep the splatters off of it.
For a final touch, I added some fun Martha Stewart Iridescent Heart Glitter from a set I picked up at Michael's with a coupon.


This card was very easy to put together and perfect for today's theme.
Please visit the 5 for 5 Designers, check out their cute projects and leave them some LOVE!!
 

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by tomorrow for a new Valentine's Inspired themed project.
