SEI Challenges with Abby #2

Well I did it again, seems like lately I have been waiting until the very very last minute to enter some challenges. This time was no different. I finally was able to get into my craft room to play. I have purchased a few new things and wanted to really start playing with them. Nothing major, a few new cartridges, twine, and some really pretty paper.

I made a super simple but very pretty card.

I used:
Bazzil Kraft, White metallic, Raspberry metallic, and Pink metallic paper. I know GASP.. NO SEI.
The cartridges used were:
Cake Basics
George and basic shapes
Sweethearts (my new toy and probably going to be a favorite).

The card it self is 4.35 x 4.25 (I know its strange but I find that if you add .10 additional to the shape it allows you to have a perfect card). This gives you a little extra so if you want to stitch it is a perfect fit. The fold compensates for a little and instead of only having a very small area to stitch/mat you have the correct size.

The White mat was cut at 4.00 x 4.00
The hearts were all cut from Sweethearts cartridge, at 1.64. I love how the hearts have several that you could layer or leave by themselves.

The sentiment is from Emma's at 1st released stamp set, "You Had Me At Chocolate".

I added some bling by using Rhinestones in pink.

Hope you enjoy and Happy Scrappin'
