7 Kids College Fund Challenge #14 - I {heart} You

Sorry I have been missing in action for the last week. After a busy work week, I spent the weekend in California at CHA! I had a wonderful time. What an incredible opportunity to meet some of the fabulous exhibitors and designers from around the world. Check back as I plan to post some pictures soon.

So, it's Wednesday and time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!

Our Challenge this week is called I {heart} You - Use a heart or hearts in your project. While I was at CHA, I saw this adorable little Tea Light Card and had to make one. Here it is...

 You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund 
Stamp:  Sweet Tilda


I colored Sweet Tilda with Copics.


I found the tutorial for my Tea Light Card at Stampartic. It ended up being quite the challenge as it was in metric and my tools are primarily in inches. However, with the use of a ruler, I managed to get it. 


I made a pocket with a little tag for the inside of the card. I got this cool iridescent paper in a sample pack at CHA. I am going to have to look into getting more of this. I love the colors.

How fun is this card? You could put little candies or other treats in there for a special little gift.

I am entering this in the following challenges...

Magnolia Down Under - Embossing (used folder)
Just Magnolia - Going Dotty (Swiss Dots Embossing Folder)
Pile It On - Punch It
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Recipe (Hearts, Pink, White, Silver)
Totally Tilda - Tilda with Lots of Hearts

Come on over to 7 Kids College Fund Challenge and join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by today.
