Truly, Madly, Deeply - For Fun Challenges DT Card

Our challenge this week at For Fun Challenges is to make either a Saint Patrick's Day card or a monochromatic green card. I chose green. I wanted a card for DH, just because I think he needs a pick-me-up. Given St. Patrick's Day this week I chose green instead of red. I kind of like the change. The hearts are water-coloured to give them that country, not too perfect look. The top heart is popped up just to give the card some visual interest. I wish I could have softened the image to the same grey as the sentiment but couldn't figure it out. The song by Savage Garden came out the same year we got together.
Challenges This Card Meets:

Creative Card Crew - No Flowers
Critter Sketch - Monochromatic Green
Marks Finest Paper - Grey, Lime Green and only one layer beyond the base
Meljen's - Green
Moving Along with the Times - Card for a Guy
One Stop Craft - Clean and Simple
Paper Sundaes - Keep it Simple


  1. Oh I love that song, and what a lovely idea to give your DH a card 'just because.....' It's a super card, and says everything it needs to. ;)
