Kristina's Colour Challenge is in the air.

It has been ages since I have posted anything on my blog and I decided that it was time to get back into the swing of things and what better way to start than by joining in on one of Kristina's Challenges!
The colours this time are Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie and while I was doing a bit of browsing on the web I noticed that there were Valentine cards everywhere!
So going with the Valentine theme and Kristina's colours, this is what I came up with.

I wanted to make a square card this I used Whisper White as my base, which I have layered with Pretty in Pink card stock and some Pumpkin Pie DSP (from the Bali Breeze DSP). I then hand drew a heart onto the DSP and cut through the 3 layers with my craft knife to make a heart shaped 'window'. Then I decided to add a bit of sparkle to the window so I ran my 2-way glue pen around the edge and added Dazzling Diamonds to it. The "FOR YOU" is hand written.
Then on the inside of the card I have stamped the 'envelope and hearts' image from my Greetings Galore stamp set (I haven't used this set for ages!), which I have coloured with markers and then I just hand wrote the word LOVE and added a bit of glitter to the hearts.
And that's it.......a very simple card but I had a lot of fun trying this challenge and getting back into making cards. I really hope that you like my card and thanks for visiting me.

Stamps: Greetings Galore. Card stock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie. Ink: Stampin' Write Markers. Accessories: Dazzling Diamond. Tools: Craft Knife, Stamp-a-majig, Blender pens.
