Dynamic Duos & Technique Tuesday ~ A Card for Ellie :)

Boy it was a COLD one here in Ottawa today! I know, I know it is January but how is it that I seem to always forget just how cold it can get here? :) So what did this mama do after a busy morning out and about... 

Came home got the kiddos settled for quiet time and worked on a special project for our son's little girlfriend. He wanted to make an extra special Valentine's Day card for his Ellie that had LOTS of "hearts on sticks" and after he saw the fabulous cards a good friend (Talented Tara over at of mine's son's will be handing out he just had to have a "scoop" too!

So with all of this in mind I give you my Dynamic Duos Challenge (thank you so much for the honourable mention last week!) card and my entry into The Technique Tuesday Crew Call Challenge! At Dynamic Duos we were asked to use Basic Black and Real Red and for Desert adding a Valentine Theme! 

My Challenges:

My Card:

For the Technique Tuesday Crew call challenge we were asked to choose a technique to apply to the project we presented. After seeing the list there were a few that I had not tried before so I thought it may be fun to combine 3 of the options. So I chose a Cascading Card, with a Faux Tile focal point and added some 3D Punch Elements. All of these techniques I totally fell in love with and cannot wait to use them again :)

Would love to be a part of the team over at Technique Tuesday so Ethan and I are hoping the ladies love our card!

Take the time to let your creativity bloom!
