PPA187 Color Challenge Changed Up A Bit

Pals Paper Arts Team 2 is on duty this week with a Color Challenge! I decided to play along-- you can, too! I changed out the Real Red for Cherry Cobbler to accommodate my embossing powder. Challenges are meant to be a starting place, so feel free to substitute as necessary, or as you feel the need.

The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Soft Sky card stock. Next I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler that was embossed with the Snowburst Embossing Folder (retired). I tied a Soft Sky Seam Binding ribbon around the embossed piece horizontally before adhering it to the Soft Sky.

On top of the ribbon, I added three hearts. The Largest Heart was Full Heart-punched from Whisper White card stock which was stamped with a Delicate Doilies image in Soft Sky ink. I matted it with the large scalloped heart from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits using Soft Sky card stock. Next, a heart die cut from Whisper White with a different Cherry Cobbler Delicate Doilies image using a Hearts a Flutter framelit. Lastly, a Small Heart punched out from Soft Sky and embellished with a Basic Rhinestone. All three hearts were popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Under the ribbon, I added four "tickets" from the That's the Ticket stamp set. Two Whisper White tickets were inked with VersaMark and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler powder. A third Whisper White ticket was inked with Soft Sky Ink. The Soft Sky ticket was inked with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Embossing powder.

I love all of the textures on this card! So much to touch and feel on this very special Valentine. I adore the Soft Sky/Cherry Cobbler colors together!

I hope you are inspired today to make your own creation, whether it be a card, a scrapbook page or a tag. Use what you have and be creative!! I'll eagerly look for your comments!
