A Valentine Without the Red
I have to fully divulge that this week's color challenge was a struggle for me. Perhaps it may because I am on stamping overload this week as I have an all day "OnStage Regional" type event planned for my local downline on Saturday. There will be displays, stamping, games, demonstrations, lunch, prize patrol, and so on. Lots to do and prepare for such a grand event!
After pondering the colors for a bit, I decided to go masculine and make a non-traditional colored valentine card. Valentines don't have to be red or pink, right? I stamped the hearts from our new Sending Love stamp set randomly on a piece of Whisper White card stock. The greeting is from Friendly Wishes and the two-tone was easily achieved with our Stampin' Write Markers. To change it up a bit, I thought it would be fun to color block a little for the frame behind the words. So on the Whisper White I used the Emerald Envy and when it crosses over onto the green, I used Pacific Point. To finish off this clean and simple card I wrapped and tied a little of our Baker's Twine around the greeting. Don't forget to check out all the other designers' work using this color combination at Create with Connie and Mary and play along. Happy Stamping!
