CC180 From Me to You...

Happy Tuesday everyone...

Today's card is for this week's Color Challenge "CC180" over at Splitcoast. The colors include Close To Cocoa, Ruby Red & Blush Blossom.

For my design it just sort of all came together. I knew with these colors, you can never go wrong with a heart somewhere on your design! The heart was done using chipboard from Stampin' Up! For the heart, I traced the chipboard on a piece of designer seriers paper and glued it to the chipboard. After about 15-20 minutes, I used a sanding block and lightly sanded around the edges.

For the image, I stamped the image in brown staz-on and colored in the sweets using my prisma colored pencils and some gamsol.

Lately you have seen a lot of stitching my cards, that is because sometimes when I don't use it on my cards, they seem a little naked? LOL :) Kind of like, not wearing any make-up except some lipstick! I NEED my lipstick if nothing else! LOL :)

Well thanks again for stopping by, don't forget to sign up for the card giveaway, I will announce a winner on August 23. :)

Here is the recipe ~ Stamps: Tiers of Treats - Stampendous, So Many Sayings (SU) Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Blush Blossom Ink: Brown Staz-on Accessories: Cuttlebug/DVine Swirls - Cut At Home, Ribbon, Chipboard, Janome Sewing Machine, Buttons & White Floss, Prisma Colored Pencils & Gamsol.

Stamping hugs,
