CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 259

Welcome to the third Tuesday of February, and this week Patricia has a sketch for us.

It's only a few days until Valentine's Day (in fact it's tomorrow) and I'm guessing that most of you have already made your valentine's card.  For those of you who are a bit last minute dot com it's not too late and I used the sketch as inspiration for one.

I started with a Melon Mambo base card and added a piece of the striped paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

I made the tag from a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the little hearts in both Melon Mambo and Basic Black. The hearts come from the Heart Happiness stamp set just like the larger heart that I stamped in Melon Mambo. 

The heart was finished off by the addition of a silver heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes. The tag was finished off with some Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon which was tied in place with some Basic Black Baker's Twine.

The sentiment which was stamped in Basic Black comes from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. Not one you would think to use for Valentines but it had the sentiment that I wanted to use.

Here's a quick look at the inside. I've no idea why the card looks bent but honestly it's not!

Don't forget to check out the projects from the other members of the design team. You can find them HERE. You'll also find the link there to add your project if you want to take part in the challenge.

Happy stamping.

  2. Love the bright contrast of this card! A perfect Valentine's card.

  3. I like the little details you've put into this - the shiny little heart, the shimmery ribbon tied with the twine, the rows of tiny hearts. The bold color combo is fun and cheery.
