I absolutely LOVE these Charlie’s Ark Sepia Toppers and as soon as I saw this one, I knew I wanted to use it to make my daughter’s Valentine card. She loves interactive cards so I decided to make a shaker card using these little Martha Stewart confetti hearts I found at the craft store. I used a very light pink copic marker to color the heart and then I sponged some of the Tea Dye duo ink around the edges. I cut the frame using a nestabilities die, ran it through the cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then sprayed it with glimmer mist. I sponged a little of the Tea Dye duo ink over the raised dots and along the edges of the frame to tone down the color and give it that “old” look and feel.

In case your wondering, my daughter was thrilled which made me very happy.  Now don't forget to leave a comment on the other blogs for your chance at winning the $50 Flower Soft gift certificate!
