Wow - 9 years of WT challenges: so I made an anniversary card for Michelle's fun challenge today to using something from a calendar - numbers, months, a date, a grid - on our cards.
I hope I can still find it in June ;-).
Hard to see in the photo but it is scored with double lines along the top and bottom.
I used two sizes of Spellbinders die and cut several hearts from white card, and one from a calendar with our anniversary date. The two red ones are embossed with Textile ef, sponged with reds, edged with a leafing pen and embossed.
The little bird ones are embossed with Birds & Swirls. I coloured the birds and swirls with Sakura glaze pens to act as a resist, and then sponged.
I tried using a music embossing ef, but as soon as I started sponging colour on it tore, and I wanted to include music so I stamped that one, and a script one.
The date is popped up on foam.
Make a date to celebrate with the WTUI challenge this week :D.

What a unique way to use hearts, Sabrina; adding the embossing, sponging and pretty dp's too! Love what you did here, and I hope you can find this card when you need it too~ (Oh, I water colored one balloon on my card and didn't like the way it looked, and that's why I ended up paper piecing them all! I do like the look, but it took lots of extra time searching for the right paper and colors!)
