Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - February Week #2

Happy Sunday Everyone! Hope your all enjoying your last day of the weekend, or in my case the last day of work before being off :)

I'm here with another project for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  This week is a Picture Perfect Challenge, where we draw inspiration for a photo.  

Here is our beautiful photo, just in time for the Love Holiday :)

I just love how the heart has pinks and gold!  So unique and not colors I would normally pair together.  Here is the card I created below.  I must apologize for the horrible lighting...I finished this card extremely late and I'm still trying to figure out how to take good pictures in the dark. LOL  

The next 2 photos show the true color of the purple card stock that I used.  This card is pretty easy to assemble once you get going.  I first stamped the hearts from Sweet Hearts with Versamark ink onto my large heart die cut and used gold embossing powder.  Once I had melted the gold embossing powder, I started to stamp the hearts in the light pink and raspberry ink (Hero Arts Shadow Inks in Pale Tomato and Raspberry Jam). 

I really wanted to use the Scripty Sayings that I just received in the mail.  I was looking for a card that was something other than 'love you', so I decided on miss you.  Can never have enough miss you cards in your stash :)

I don't have any banner dies in my collection of crafty things, so I decided to create one.  I simply cut a V into the right side of the sentiment.  On the left side I made 2 score marks approximately 1/4" apart, add some foam adhesive, then fold them in opposite directions and you have a little floating banner.  Easy Peasy! 

Hope you guys enjoyed this card!  Be sure to head over to the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog to see the super talented design team projects and to enter in on the fun of the challenge for your chance to win Store Credit toward your next Paper Smooches Order!!
