Every Saturday on the  Create with Connie & Julie site we issue a challenge. Our subscribers are encouraged to enter the challenge to win fabulous prizes!  Last week's challenge winners were LISA MARTZ and JESSICA TAYLOR!  Congratulations, ladies!

This week's Color Challenge was to create a card using the colors of Real Red, Pretty in Pink, and Chocolate Chip.  Of course, those are the same colors in the Stampin' Up! Sending Love Designer Paper, so I had to use it!

For my card, I started with a base of Chocolate Chip cardstock, then layered on the glittery small flower print in Sending Love for the background.  I added a strip on the left of the contrasting designer paper and wrapped the Pretty in Pink 5/8 Satin Ribbon around it. 

For the focal piece, I cut a square of Chocolate Chip and layered it on a larger square of Pretty in Pink.  I used the new Scallop Heart of Hearts Embosslit to cut four Real Red hearts and used Chocolate Chip around the edges.  I stamped the small flower image from With All My Heart in Real Red on Very Vanilla, then punched it with the Scallop circle punch.  For some added interest, I sponged the edges in Real Red, then cut a slit in every other scallop, it looks like hearts around the edge and I curled it up slightly.  The inside holds a large Corduroy Button Brad.  I love how this looks!
