You Paint My Heart Happy

Just popping in to share a clean and simple card that I made for 3 CAS challenges. I want to get it posted before the challenges end!

Cas-ual Fridays CFC86 - Long and Short

Cas(e)This Sketch

Less Is More -  Friends theme

My card is 3" x 5 1/2" so it's Long and Short!  For the sketch I stamped a heart from the Sweet Hearts set by Waltzingmouse 4 times in 4 bright Ranger Distress colors.  To help with placement of the hearts I measured and drew a line in pencil down the center of the card. The sentiment is from the Clearly Sentimental About Art set from MFT.

A clean and simple card doesn't always get done quickly -  I stamped this three different times!  The first time I didn't let the ink dry long enough and so the ink ran when I erased the pencil.  The second time I somehow got a smudge on the bottom of the card.  The third time was a charm and here it is!

Thanks for coming by today - we're expecting 5" of snow tonight.  Luckily I took tomorrow off so I won't have to get out into it early in the morning!

Stamps:  hearts from Sweet Hearts set by Waltzingmouse, sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Art set by My Favorite Things.
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Ink - Festive Berries, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire
