Tanda Teaser Challenge Card - On The Case

I decided to join in with the latest Tanda Teaser challenge today as it sounded like fun. The challenge was to 'case' or replicate a card from Sheila's blog. I spent ages looking through all Sheila's wonderful creations and finally decided on this red and white love themed card, thinking it would be fairly simple to recreate....after all I was bound to have some red and white polka dot paper somewhere and a heart punch....errr...well as it turned out...NO!!!!!! All I had was a similar stamp from stamping up (the word love).

I was disappointed but determined to join in so I improvised by punching out lots of white paper dots and glueing them onto the red paper (something I don't ever want to do again in a hurry!!!). I found a single red foam heart and made 2 paper ones to go with it using one of the Glitter Girls' boards. The white lines and dots on the hearts are drawn with a white Sakura pen. I just added stems taken from some paper flowers I was tired with to the hearts, a white organza bow and some tiny teardrop shaped red gems.
