Warm Hearts

It's very rare that I am able to complete Splitcoaststampers challenges on the same day that they are posted. I had the day off today so I've been getting a lot of stamping done.

This image is from Pink Papery Studios. Since its a digital image I was able to resize it to 1 inch circles-perfect for today's card sketch challenge (SC206). I wanted the card to have a warm feeling to it so I chose comforting colors such as chocolate chip and purely pomegranate. If you look closely at the card you'll see that I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and to make it really pop I punched out additional CB circles with my 1 inch punch and staggered them on the card. Another option would be to sponge tone on tone ink onto the embossed portions of the pattern and on the edges of the card. Its a subtle way to add a little wow to your project.

How clever of you to punch out sections of your cb folder and pop them up. Great card overall.
