Colour Q #170 and Paper Players #127

"Love is in the Air"  is the theme at Paper Players this week. (Sidebar: This card is my first Paper Player's play-along! Yippee!) I thought it was a perfect chance to combine with the Colour Q challenge, where there are different color combinations to choose. I picked one that paired up classically with the "Love" themed card.


I LOVE crafting on Kraft! So I'm usually game if I see that color popping up.

I used my CTMH chipboard hearts leftover from a kit and heat embossed red and pink on each one. CTMH Baby Pink and Ranger's Real Red. I stamped the diamond plating pattern in CTMH black from my Grunge set (Skipping Stones Design) and the red dotted paper is BoBunny. My sentiment is stamped in Black VersaFine ink from my CTMH "Affection" stamp set. 

Honestly, I wasn't all that tickled with how the diamond plating turned out and wish I'd selected a different background stamp to "ground" my hearts. The twine helped it a great deal, but it still went down as an "all right" in my files rather than favorite. :) They can't all blow my skirt up, but I sure would love for them to do so.

Hope you are having a wonderful week and getting back in the swing of things after the holiday madness has settled down. Thank you for visiting!
