Papertakes Weekly Challenge GUEST DESIGNER


Yes that is right for the next five weeks I am so excited to say that I am a guest designer for Papertakes Weekly Challenge. I am so happy and excited and it is an honor to design for them.

And now for this weeks challenge

Have A Heart

and quite simply we just want to see something heart shaped on your card or included somewhere in your work. This could be as part of the design paper, or a heart shaped embelly or die cut or punch – whatever you want to use.  As always, it’s up to you.

Here is my take:

and the card:

Now head on over and show us what you can create….so much freedom here! I can not wait to see what you create!

Until next time ……be creative!

Wow, is this ever gorgeous, Karen! The detail on here is out of this world and the design is amazing. I love how you work some patterned papers, my friend. A girl after my own heart. Lovely layering and trim and scallops. Love those flowers stapled on. Totally gorgeous!
