Spoonful sugar: secret message

Hello! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend even if we are having a non-existent summer! It's been raining on and off here and have you noticed it's turning dark earlier - how depressing!

Anyway, I've only made the one card tonight as I made the mistake of re-arranging bits on my desk and don't you find that once you start everything kinda explodes and I had a tough time trying to find homes for everything again! Didn't make any over the weekend as I've been watching the Olympics and also making more crochet flowers as I've got the hang of them now (turned out my earlier efforts weren't actually correct as I got some of the stitches wrong but don't think you can tell lol).

Enough talk, here's the card. It's for spoonful of sugar challenge which ends in about 30mins so I best get my skates on! The theme was 'a secret message' so I thought I'd make anniversary card for hubby seeing as it's our anniversary this Friday (8yrs).

The hearts swing down to reveal the secret message:
H&S images (thanks Nikki!) coloured with promarkers, cut out and raised on 3d foam. DP is cosmo cricket 'honey pie', some red glitter card and a sizzix heart die used. Added some stardust glitter pen over the spots and also faux stitching around the edges and that was it. It was refreshing to make a card that wasn't square for a change!

Hopefully he'll like it as he likes most of my cute cards, it's the 'arty' ones that I don't get much reactions too!
