CSS Color Challenge HOP 2-5-13

Hi Everyone- I am so glad you stopped by.  I have a card today for the StampTV  CSS blog hop to show you.  The Color Challenge is to use Pink or Red with a neutral of White, tan or black.

If you have arrived from  Linda Payne's blog, you are in the correct place.  

I used a Black background that I impressed with the CB Polka Dots folder.  The Heart was made with Spellbinder Scalloped Heart.  My stamped image is from StampTV Lovely Ladybug set by Gina, which I colored with Copic R46.  I popped up the circle and the sentiment and attached them to the heart, giving some added dimension, to make this Valentine.



 Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, February 12.

I am so glad you stopped by on your way to  Joy's blog.  Thank you for visiting!
