It's Thursday, and time for our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge! I must say that I REALLY like my card today! lol! We have a color challenge for you to play along with this week. Yummy, bright colors of Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral and Lucky LImeade!
Well, the colors made it a little challenging for a Valentine card, but I wanted to use the sets that we are featuring this week on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition 2012…PS I Love You, Take it to Heart and Candy Conversations. So here is my card!
I think I met the challenge, don't you? I started with a base of Peach Parfait. I added a neutral layer of Crumb Cake that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder. I added a strip of Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper (coming up in the SAB brochure!) and layered it on Lucky Limeade cardstock. I punched a Full Heart from Calypso Coral cardstock. I added three of the candy hearts from Candy Conversations, stamping them in Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade and punch with the Small Heart Punch. I tied a bow with the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and attached the hearts to the streamers. I added one more heart to the center of the bow. The Full Heart punch is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, I stamped the greeting in Basic Black on Very Vanilla and cut out the portion to tuck under the Designer Paper at the top. Isn't this a FUN card?
