Love You - for Bitten by the Bug and Colour CreateChallenge



The design team were asked to use the Love cut from the Home Accents cartridge, and to cut it in brown. So here's what I did. The base card is 5" x 7", the LOVE was cut at 4" then run through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. I cut the aqua heart at 3 3/4" and added peach prima flowers with aqua gems in the centres. The stamp is a sitting Tilda by Magnolia stamps, coloured with copic markers and cut out. I put her to sit on the letter L. I punched strips of brown, peach and cream with Martha Stewarts doily lace punch. The word 'you' is done with Heidi rub ons by making memories. Click HERE to see all the design team's take on the challenge. I found a new challenge blog this week called Colour CreateChallenge, and this week they are asking for cards made using aqua and peach, so this one fits the bill perfectly. I so rarely manage to combine challenges, I feel quite proud of myself for combining these two this week, or at least I did until I went back and saw that the only other colour you are allowed to use is cream or white. Hmm, we'll have to pretend that the brown is a very dark cream then.
