CCMC392 Color Challenge in Hearts

Connie and Mary are running a color challenge that is
one of my favorite color combos.  Well, actually anything
with Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake ranks right up there.

 A while ago, I "squeezed" (rather than running it 
through the Big Shot) some c/s in a Happy Heart 
Textured Embossing Folder inked with Versa Mark.
I removed the panel and poured gold embossing powder
over it, so that I had embossed hearts (the center panel
of this card).  For the challenge, I colored those hearts
with the challenge colors.  

I added the XOXO,  from the Circle Card Thinlits
die, and attached it to a piece of Basic Black.
There is a bit of Gold Metalic Thread wound up behind
the sentiment.

What a great way to get extra mileage out of your embossing folder Jackie - it stamped beautifully and the gold embossing gives a great outline for your delicate colouring. The central panel and bold yet simple diecut sentiment look great against the textured white background. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
