Beate – Weekend Challenge #33


This card has a bit of story – it was inspired by my two-year old son, Aidan.

Aidan broke a bowl. It was entirely my fault as I left the bowl perched precariously on the arm of a chair.

Aidan, taking his responsibilities as a toddler very seriously did his toddler duty and knocked it off the chair.

The broken bowl proved inspiring especially combined with Beate’s wonderful sketch.

And here’s my little helper – I love him to pieces!

  • Jennifer, your card looks amazing! I love the pieced hearts. Now…are those actual pieces of your bowl, or what did you use for that?
    Thanks so much for playing with the sketch! Hugs and smiles

    Yep, those are pieces of the actual bowl inside the paper hearts.

    I was going to ask if those were pieces of the broken bowl but Beate me to it. My next question is are they sharp-edged? If not, what did you do to dull them?

    I LOVE the card. Perhaps I would have preferred a different ribbon. If red, a solid or a pattern more like the bowl or background paper patterns. Or checks but in a colour already on the card. That might just be me, however; I like mixes of patterns but keep finding I’m more conservative about it than many other people.

  • Beautiful Jennifer! I love the colors! – even the touch of red!

  • Amazing! You have skills! I tried a mosaic one time, it looked like a 2 year old made it!

    Glad you found your way to Splitcoast, your work is beautiful!!
