Love Always


Hi, welcome back after the holidays, hope everyone had a nice Christmas! Now I'm done with the Christmas cards and moving on to the next holiday, Valentine's Day. This card was made for two challenges over at SCS, the IS160 challenge which was to do anything other than Christmas and we couldn't use red or green on the card. And the LSC200 challenge which is an inspiration challenge. To make this card I inked up my new Stampendous "Mega Love" set with coral Brilliance (to me it looks pink, not coral at all), stamped it onto white confetti paper, over stamped with "always" with black Brilliance and then I shaded the pink letters with darker pink at the bottom of the letters. A SU corner punch was used to make a tag shape and the hearts were stamped at the bottom of the pink card with black VersaFine. Silver heart Class A'Peels by Stampendous were placed in the center of the three hearts and at the top left corner of the tag.
Have a great weekend!

I love the pink with the black accents. It really stands out. Well I am on my way to Michaels this morning the paper had flyers in it. Up to 75 percent off *wink*
This is a beautiful card Jamie, the color combos is what caught my eye first thing. Thanks for always checking by my site and leaving such nice remarks.

I LOVE the shimmer of Brilliance pads! I agree with you that this looks pink, though! This is a great card, the little heart gems are just the perfect touch!!
