The added 'challenge" is to use this inspirational photo when creating your card. (use either the design or the colors). Remember in honor of Theresa there is an added twist: Play along every week this month, add PINK to your card and only combine the TMS challenge with a maximum of 2 other challenges and your name will be entered for a chance to win blog candy.
I chose to use both the paisley print and the colors.
A Cuttlebug folder was used to emboss the background, then the raised areas were sanded to reveal the deeper pink in the Core'dinations CS. The frame and edger are both Nestabilities. The stamp from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company was stamped with Memento ink on white CS. The center square was cut out and colored with Prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol. Using pink CS the image was stamped and embossed (with white embossing powder) a total of three times. A craft knife was used to carefully remove the outer square without cutting the heart. This heart and two from the other stamped/embossed pieces were fussy cut and attached near the corners of the brown frame. The tiny hearts were filled in with a white gel pen. Raspberry Stickles were added for a touch of sparkle.
This photo shows a close up of the sanded areas of the background.
