Here's my entry in the Embellish Color Trends Challenge with Hearts.  What do you think? It really *is* a bit of a challenge having to use certain colours, plus hearts.  I will be using that gorgeous teal colour again :)

The "Be Mine" swag is a digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles.  It's in her Sentiments range.  I had never used a digital item like this - but they're great.  Just download the item, do any colour changes, print on card, and trim.  Easy!

I went around the edges of the card stock with a Versa colour cube, in Bark.

I used my Martha Stewart Scallop Dot, Border edge punch.  Love it.
Anna's Craft Cupboard has these at a really great price btw ;)  The neutral/brown coloured card, is Botany.  This card stock has a recycled component, and is 230gsm in weight.  Plaza DJ really helped me out with that!  And I'm not on commission - honestly!  ;)

A behind the scenes look at the making of this card.  I gathered together any bits and pieces that might be useful, and just had a bit of a play around.  I was looking for anything I had for that amazing colour combination: Hot Pink, Deep Red, Teal, and Olive Green.  Yes, that's the "Marrtha Stoo-wart" border punch in the bottom right there ;)
