Inspired Valentine

Hello everyone,

Today's card is based on two challenges. Creative Inspirations wanted us to use our scrap bins and ColourQ was looking for a card with Stampin' Up Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and White. Thank goodnes I've a big scrap box.

I used a Halcraft card base. Each strip of Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa and Chocolate Chip was stamped with Stampin' Up I {Love} Love wheel. The sentiment is TPC Studio Hugs and Kisses. Peggy's Pretties add just a bit of bling.

I have to say I wasn't sure about this colour combination but I love how my card turned out. I was looking to do something simple yet impactful and this fits the bill. It is amazing how elements that may not thrill you, can come together and make a really great card. I also love using the Stampin' Around Wheel and I don't use it often enough. It is always very impactful. I also have to mention Peggy's Pretties (I get them at Scrap 'n Stamp) which are just half rounds that have been painted beautiful colours and I just love how they look on cards.

Please enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.
