DCBD #110


I was so happy to finally get my Love You Much bundle package this week. I also got the crafter's tool kit, which now I can do the paper piercing. I just love what it adds to a card.
This week we were given a color sketch. Thanks, Heidi! I thought the colors were great together. My challenge was not having the Riding Hood Red ink pad. Next time since I know the In Colors last for a year I am going to purchase all of them. Anyhow, despite not having the ink, I knew that I could make it work with the Close to Cocoa ink. I guess when you think of a Valentine's card you automatically think it has to be red or pink!
Tell me what you think of my card. I always love the comments. Don't be afraid to even suggest something. Make sure you check out all of the other Diva Coffee Break Design team member's blogs to see what they came up with for this challenge. Take it upon yourself to try it also. Just let me know you did it. I would love to see it if you do. Also if you don't have Stampin' Up! paper use the colors that you do have that would best mimic SU!'s.

Cute layout Chris. I could see this as a scrapbook page layout too! Love the corners with the hearts.
