Hearts and Cupcakes

Are you up for a fun color challenge today? I was, and the SCS challenge was the perfect thing: Melon Mambo, Cherry Cobbler and Pretty in Pink. I made a Valentine's Day card for the Paper Players' most recent challenge. I kept it pretty simple and let my cute Create a Cupcake punches star on this card - and hey, since it's punches it also fits the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for this week. For the background I stamped cherry hearts using the Confetti stamp set, and the sentiment comes from Grateful Greetings. I wanted just a few little accents to polish it off, so I added some rhinestones, double scallop ribbon border punches (Tip of the Day: punch one strip, cut it in half, and glue one strip to each side of your panel) and a tag cut with the Big Shot and Lots of Tags.

I think that's it - I have lots more to do today, especially since we're supposed to get at least a foot of snow tomorrow and I bet the kids will be home from school. Hope you are enjoying better weather wherever you are - thanks for stopping by!
