The Ton February Challenge - HEART

Hello everyone! 
We've arrived in the second month of 2018! How fast the time flies...

The Ton Challenge is having a cue word challenge in February. And the cue word is HEART

I've made a trifold Valentine's day card using Sweet Folk Hummingbird set from our 3rd Anniversary Release. 

I cut the heart from a white cardbase with my cutting machine. The tulips from Sweet Folk Hummingbird were gold heat embossed on some watercolor paper and colored with Color Burst. I aligned the tulips so that the big flower is peeking out from the heart window. 

I splattered soft blue watercolor and opaque white paint on the colored panel and let it dry. The colored panel was then glued on another cardbase which I adhered to the first one with the heart window to make a trifold card. I added thin strip of Glossy Fine Silver adhesive paper onto the colored panel like a frame.

I gold heat embossed the hummingbird from Sweet Folk Hummingbird on a scrap of watercolor paper, watercolored it in mint, purple and gray and coated it with a clear glitter pen. I cut the hummingbird with the coordinating die and foam mounted it next to the heart window.

The sentiment is from XOXO mini set. I stamped it in Plum Wine in a curved line running from the heart towards the bottom of the card. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Smoked Amethyst Sparkling clear sequins, Mint Sugar and Misti Mint Couture Mix on the colored panel to keep the front panel with the heart window as simple as possible!
