I Spy With My Little Eye...............Hearts and/or Roses (Challenge No. 11)

Happy Wednesday and welcome to another "I spy with my little eye" challenge taking place right here on my blog. Pauline and I are back with a new theme and we hope you will join us too for a chance to be selected as a top pick which comes with an invitation to be our guest designer(s). You can scroll down to see who the top picks from our last challenge were.

It's my turn (Ellie) this time to select a theme and it is...........

I spy with my little eye............

Hearts and/or Roses.

They don't need to be the focal point but do need to be found somewhere on your projects. You can choose either hearts, or roses, or a combination of the two. We can't wait to see what you will create! 

Here is what we came up with:

My Card (Ellie)

This post may include some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links. As always, this is at no cost to you. Thank you so much for supporting this blog!

I used the beautiful stamp set Sent with Love from Aall and Create. My colors were inspired by the current Triple B mood board here. I used Icy Spruce Distress Oxide ink for the background. The rose was stamped on a snippet of cardstock, colored with Zig Clean Color markers and then fussy cut. The tiny row of hearts stamped over the word "Rose" is from the set Define Love also by Aall and Create. The "Happy Birthday" words are from a retired set by MFT (Label Sentiments) stamped on more snippets, cut out and adhered with foam tape. I used stickles glitter on the rose and around the word "rose" for some sparkle. 

I am entering my card (above) to these challenges:
