colourQ Challenge #122

This weeks colourQ colours speak Valentines to me with a splash of kraft.  I started off with a Pure Poppy card base, with a a white inside panel.  I rounded the upper left and bottom right corners of both pieces inspired by this amazing post by Wanda Guess.  I die cut my hearts and stamped the card with my sentiment and then large heart with a stamp from Heart Prints.  The heart were adhered with foam dots for dimension.  Honestly I think this is my favourite Valentine I have created so far this year.







All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: Pure Poppy, White, Kraft
Designer Paper:  Cupcake (Doodlebug)
Stamps:  Heart Prints, Think Big Favourites #11
Ink: Pure Poppy, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Dies: Heart Prints
other: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers),  foam dots

Oh Tracey, I love this card! Love the way you rounded just two corners, and the seemingly random sprinkling of hearts (carefully placed)! I've been kicking around some ideas for this challenge but can't seem to get it off the ground. Yours is perfect!

This is really super. I like the pink glittered hearts, and the way you spaced everything just so. That think big favorite sentiment really packs a big punch. It's a sophisticated valentine.
