Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and I hope it brings you and your loved ones a blessed year!

Yesterday I worked on Kristina's Color Challenge...

Here are the colors:

I loved this color combination. I immediately die cut some hearts in red and green thinking I would emboss them. I ended up using the cut out as a mask instead. Here is my main heart.

I stamped the pretty floral/flourish stamp on white cardstock and embossed using light pink embossign powder. I then took the cardstock where I had cut out the hearts and used that as a mask and sponged on the red ink to make my hearts.

I purchased these charms with sentiments. I thought this was an appropriate sentiment.
  • Paper Inspirations - Floral Flourish
  • Creative Beginnings - Pastel Pink Embossing Powder
  • Martha Stewart - Doily Lace Border Punch
  • EK Success - Red Adornments
  • Sizzix Heart Die Cuts
  • Ranger Distress Inks - Fire Brick
  • Plaid Enterprised - Fresh Metal Charms - Love

Thanks for stopping by...
