Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge #3

Good morning!

Today I am very excited to be once again joining the Serendipity Stamps Design Team. It is a fabulous group of ladies and I am so glad to be a part of it. I'm starting off my term with the first Design Team challenge of 2013, to create something with a heart.

I hope you've heard about the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog, where the DT shares their samples for this bi-monthly challenge and also gives you the chance to play along (for a prize, too!) I hope you will join us, all you need is at least one Serendipity image and a project that follows the theme!

Here is what I created for our 'Have a Heart' challenge:

I used the Valentine Postoid (184E) and Will You Be Mine (1079D) stamps on my card. I stamped the postoid twice, coloring and layering one image on top of the second. I used the small hole punch on my Crop-o-dile to punch out the postage border so I didn't have to fussy cut the whole thing. I also added some other lovey embellishments... a fancy doily, foil heart paper that I've been hoarding forever, and lots of pink. It was a joy to create with these images again!

I hope you'll take the chance to join in the challenge. Stop over to the Challenge Blog for all the details and to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:

...and be sure to grab our badge!
