My Sample for KWerner's 21st Challenge

This was a really difficult challenge for me. I could see myself using maybe the white, plus 2 of the other colours together...but the blue, the green, AND the pinks??? It was really bright for me, so I tried to make it as simple as possible.

The card base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White CS folded in half. The next layer is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White, sponged with Regal Rose ink. At the bottom of that, I stamped my sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Versamark, and sponged on some Rose Red pastel.

Then, there is a 4 1/4" x 2 1/2" piece of Kiwi Kiss CS, which was scalloped using the Scallop Edge Punch from SU. It was also embossed in white with the sprig image from the set Always. I tied some of the new Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon around that and mounted it with Dimensionals.

For the heart (also from the set Always), I stamped it once in Pacific Point ink on White CS, and cut it out. Then, I stamped it in Versamark onto Pacific Point CS and embossed in white. I cut that one out, but a little smaller than the first one. I layered those on top of eachother, then onto the card, all with Dimensionals.

I think I saw this general layout somewhere on SCS, with the horizontal strip and the heart. Not too sure though.

Thanks for stopping by!
