Floral Valentine

Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #441 is underway, effective Tuesday, January 21, through Sunday, February 2, 2020. In addition to the sketch, the optional twist is to use foil. I don't have any foiling equipment so used foiled cardstock. Here is the sketch:

I elected to use a mix of patterned papers along with the glitter paper in two colors and the foiled cardstock. The various papers were cut to follow the sketch and adhered to a white card base. I die cut directly from the patterned paper for two of the hearts. The edges of the hearts were lightly sponged for definition and stacked onto the card front with foam tape. The inside was decorated with a few small hearts. The card was finished off with a few pearls and a spritz of shimmer mist.

How disappointing that I was unable to capture the pretty teal color of the foil. Shiny objects are always difficult to photograph.

Challenges at TSOT are biweekly and a new one begins each Tuesday. You are cordially invited to play along any time. Visit our challenge blog for details.
