Two for the price of one!

Hi all,

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. Daisy started back at her dance lessons today. She decided to do ballet this year and was so excited as she got to wear a pink leotard, tutu and pink ballet shoes. To top it off, her Grandma sent her some 'ballerina' hair things and she just had to wear them all! After dance, we also went to the library, the hairdressers and for lunch with her in her ballet things as she didn't want to take them off!

On to my card. I have been hearing about double easel cards for a while now and when I saw one on Lorraine's fab blog I thought I would have a go too. I made it up as I went along and decided to make mine heart shaped. Purple is my favourite colour and I love it combined with green, so I went for that. The papers are by DCWV and Prima and the cute images are Herb and Clementine from the wonderful Stamp Fairy. All the images are so cute, I could spend hours choosing. The flowers and lace are Wild Orchid.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Stamp Fairy - lace and hearts - no red or pink

Papertake weekly - have a heart

Digital Tuesday - Valentine's Day

Hi Nikki

What a brilliant card.

Love the shape very much.

This would be perfect for a "twins" arrival card or an engagement or marriage card with individual names on each heart!!

Thank you for the inspiration.

Love the pastel colours and the gorgeous embellishments.

Love Jules xx
