Love You

Good Morning friends! I hope you're having a great week! We're all getting back into the swing fo things, but boy, getting up is hard to do!:) I'm starting my 6 am workouts again and yep...it's going to kill me for a few days!

I wanted to share a fun card I made for the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge. You can see the challenge and great inspiration from Ashley here. The challenge was to use pink, red and black for the colors and then use hearts. I happen to love these colors and really wanted to play along! I used the CPS sketch 148 for the layout of my card too.
I chose real red, raspberry fizz and this fun black patterned paper from AC for my colors. I used my top note die and my big shot for the main panel. The sketch I used from CPS has a smaller center piece, but that is the fun of using a sketch, you can make it "yours" by making your card just the way you want to!

I used my heart punch from SU to make several real red hearts and added them to my red top note. I tied some rapsberry fizz satin ribbon around, make a fun little flat bow, and added a button. My sentiment is from PTI's Papertrey stamp set. The little heart next to the sentiment is raised with a dimensional.

It felt good to play along with a few challenges...I so enjoy that! I've got another card to share tomorrow that is challenge related as well, so be sure to stop by! Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, are any of you my bloggin' buddies going to be at CHA? I'm going to both the super show and wholesale show and would LOVE to meet you face to face if you will be there! I'm so excited I can't wait!

Have a great day!!

Oh, now this is a sweet card! At first, I thought your hearts were from a cuttlebug folder, I love the scattered look in the background and the pink bow really sparkles against the red! Yum!

To answer your question, I lived in Lewiston...now if you don't know where that is, the next biggest city would be Smithfield, or Logan...lol...if you're not familiar with all 3 of those cities, then I really lived in a small town, hah? I went to Sky View High then moved out here to Calif. to finish my last 2 yrs. of high school....still have many many friends back there, just had our 25 yr. reunion!

6 am workouts would not work for me. I prefer late morning or early afternoon. I am not a morning person at all. I love your card and the way the hearts are places on the background. Gorgeous card!
