A Kind Heart

I made two more detailed cards (see recent posts) and two less detailed cards. This post combines two challenges: Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #20 (PPC-CC20) using Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and Rose Red and Card Patterns Sketch 71 . I found this color combo a bit tricky. I love using patterned paper in my cards, so that is the first thing I go to in order to see of I can find something to use that is close to the colors given in the challenge. I usually stick pretty close to the sketch layout as well (what can I say, I’m a conformist!), but for this card, I stretched the sketch slightly. I have typically been using a white card base for my cards, but I thought I’d do something a little differently on this card. I’m not sure if I like the way this turned out, but sometimes, that’s the way it goes! Here is the recipe for this card:

Card Stock – Cherry Cobbler (card base), Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, PTI White
Patterned Paper – Basic Grey “Eva”
Stamp set – SU Friendship Flowers (retired)
Ink – Signo Gel Pen, Chocolate Chip Classic Ink (SU)
Accessories – Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 11, Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Trim Border (both SU), PTI buttons, white embroidery floss, dimensionals

Thanks for having a look!
