Sending Smiles

This is my DT Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #379, a Valentine Inspiration Board and an Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #352 that has already closed. Cut the bottle from a clear soft plastic bag and in cardstock, penciled in where bottle would be, placed some of the candy hearts and then pieced together the bottle and placed over the hearts.  Again, outlined where I would place the flowing hearts and adhered them with glue in layers.  Added a sentiment.    

My oldest son comes over quite frequently and I put aside any of the cards I made from the previous week and have him critique them.  He then puts them in order of his favorite to least favorite.  This one failed... why? "Mom, candies do not fall out of a jar like that" and I told him "My jars do".  But since it didn't make it to the AHSC challenge, I decided to fill it in as candies would fall from a jar.    Twisted Sister from Double Trouble was here visiting this past weekend and she suggested to mail this card to him with the change.  So off it went in the mail as a Valentine Day card... I know it will go in his collection of homemade cards and maybe it will then become a favorite.   

Please pop over to Color Dare and see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered this challenge, and join us in this fun color challenge. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share your project the first week you have another week to enter your project.

I was wondering how you made all those little hearts! I agree with you - candies WILL fall out of a jar like this... Love your card!

"Sweet" card, Sue! Too bad it didn't make it into the sketch challenge but that did not diminish the fun factor in your design. I'll take candy from a jar anyway it falls outs.
