Heart 2 Heart - Magical

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is "Magical". Close To My Heart has a paper pack titled Magical but I decided to do something different instead. I will have just returned from Convention when this post will go live and I have had my fill of Disney (and although I hate to admit it, I am NOT a fan of Disney...  I know... I can hear the booing and hissing from all the Disney fans out there, and I can take it!) 

So, since I decided not to use the Magical paper pack, I had to come up with another idea. I have had the Dizzy Circles stamp set for ages and decide to pull it out for this card. I did a LOT of masking and arranged the circles into flowers and then took a sentiment from an old Workshop on the Go stamp, the stems from another stamp and the letters from an alphabet stamp (that's 4 sets if you're counting). The pattern was taken from one of the Make It From Your Heart books.  

For some reason, Peacock ink always looks like navy... looks true to colour when stamped but never when photographed. 

Join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your interpretation of Magical (and it doesn't even have to do with Disney!) You have the entire month of July to enter this or any of the July challenges. Be sure to include some Close To My Heart products in your project.

  1. Great card, Alyson! I love what you did with the Dizzy Circles--perhaps I'll be inspired to take my underused stamp set out and play with it. Yes, this card says "Magical".

  2. Your card is everything about how you made all those dizzy circles into a magical floral...beautiful.
