Color Hues: the Color Challenge Pink and Red

Well, hello and I'm back again with a new card for The Color Hues Card Challenge, this
time the colors are Pink and Red. Perfect for a Valentine card!

The Greetery's order came so quickly, I dived right in and chose the Heart Arrow
Foiling and die cut. 

For the background I used the Ribbon Maker Heart Strip Die and glued. several strips
of shimmer pink cardstock onto a shade darker pink. Then I cut it again from red to 
retrieve the heart centers and glued them within each heart.  

I was so happy to be chosen as one of the runners up for the last challenge, and
I used one of the same dies (Loopy Bow) on this card as I did on the last one.
It's such a happy bow! Hot Stuff Sentiments die was first red embossed, and
then pink glittered.

Valentines are happy cards we give to those special ones in our lives. Love the
bright kitchy feel of combining red and pink. 

Have a great week!
