50 Shades...

Hello! Have you ever been inspired by a book to make a card? Here is what I dreamed up. I'm entering this for the CAS-ual Friday's challenge #61.

and the inside:

I know! I'm not right in the head! LOL! This is the challenge:

How fitting is that! Buahahaha! Actually, it's to use strips of paper on your card. I used scraps of gray card stock and layered them unevenly onto a card stock base, drew stitching along all edges and glued to card base. I used a heart stamp that was part of my winnings a few weeks ago from Unity's Friends With Flair challenge and embossed onto a red card stock scrap, then filled in with Glossy Accents. The wings I cut using my Slice die cut machine, and finished with some baker's twine from Doodlebug. I used an alphabet stamp from Hero Arts to stamp the inside sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I had fun creating it! I hope you try your hand at making a card based off a book - it's pretty fun! Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable! Love that pieced background with the faux stitching. Looks like a beautiful ombre pattern that is so popular right now. Love what you did with the heart, too. :)
