Hidden Messages

Here's my next "Creative Expressions Design Team piece" using the wonderful Wendy Veechi stamps. I made a template with heart shaped petals to open out to reveal a hidden message, bearing in mind I made this last week and only saw the latest Craft Stamper afterwards it's a bit spooky....hidden messages and all that! Ok a bit different, but hidden all the same.

The dotty and stripy papers were from the Treasury in Kidderminster, I bought them for another project...but then decided to use them for this laid plans and all that.

I used the lacy Wendy Veechi stamp to stamp the heart shaped petals and the sentiment (first time I've used this particular stamp). All stamping and distressing has been done in distress inks. Metallic and bling elements are in the form of brads. The pointy from the Just rite Cling set. Greetings from Paris. The leaves were die cut using the Spellbinders foliage die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

"Moving Along With the Times - Spots and or Stripes"

"Pixie Dust Studio - Put your heart into it"

"Southern Girls - show us your Sparkle"

"Simon Says Stamp - Spots and or Stripes"

"Anything goes - anything goes"

"Everybody Art Challenge - shabby"

"Incy Wincy Designs - vintage"
