You're So Not My Sweetheart! is getting really close to Valentine's Day!
Have you made any cards yet?

I got to host this challenge and when asked what theme I wanted,
out popped "you're so not my sweatheart"
I was having one of those pisser days
where nothing and I mean nothing was good or right!

So for this challenge you must use black and the twist is
your project must be made for any one but your significant other!
I'm sending this one to mysister.

I used one of the new Serens images called
Serena Plays Her Guitar.

I made a "Tealight" card but instead of tealights I added chocolates!

It opens opposite because of the opening box for the chocolates.
I took some ideas from several tutorials and then made it my own.

I used papers from DCWV "Rock Star"
added Spellbinder's Sprokets die cuts and
heat embossed them with silver,
added a few metal gears on the sentiment tags.

Here is a close up on Miss Serena

I wanted to do flames on her guitar but nothing
came out the way I wanted
so I just did it in flaming colors and added clear
spica pen over it. You can't see it that well.

Hope you like it!

Make sure you leave some love on the other DT's blogs!
They each have come up with some spectacular projects!
Our guest DT this time around is Cammy..
she won the "Thankful with a Turkey Twist" challenge back in November.  Make sure you check her project out here.
And get your butts over to the challenge site and
upload your projects. There are some fab prizes to be won!
The challenge will start today and continue unti the 16th.
Have fun!
