Birthday Hearts


I decided to try another one of the fantastic Color Inspiration challenges from Kristina Werner.
WOW! This one was hard for me!!! Definately a challenge!!! It took me a long time to come up with something that I was happy with! What do you think???
The colors for this challenge were Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Regal Rose, and Whisper White. I only have the two in colors for inks, so this challenge was hard. I got around that fact by using Versamark on the each different color of card stock. I stamped the hearts from Priceless and then cut then out. I layered them with dimensionals too! I stamped the saying from the retired It's Your Birthday set in kiwi kiss using my stamp-a-ma-jig to get it in the right place. I also used the scallop edge punch and the 1/16" hole punch to create a fun edge. I then tied whisper white taffeta ribbon around the top.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

I actually saw these shoes and wanted all of them because they were so candy-colored. Your hearts are all rowed up like the shoes, I just want to pluck one off and eat it! ( like candy, not shoes)

Congrats on making top 10-with your yummiest card yet. This is the best challenge ever! Can't wait to see how you'll outdo yourself......
