{embellish} colour with hearts

Well Hello there!!!! Happy New Year!!!!

I thought I'd better post something for you all to look at before you decided to give up on me... hahaha. And to be honest... this one almost didn't make it.... I'm still not 100% happy with it, but... here it goes anyway.

I've been wanting to participate in one of the {Embellish} magazine challenges.. well since they begun, and finally I've managed to get one done, although for my {Embellish} debut, I would've preferred something a little more bedazzling on my behalf, but I PROMISE to do better next time :o)

Righty... the challenge was a Colour with Hearts want and here is what I came up with:-

Here is the sample of colours for you to see:-

Absolutely GORGEOUS I might add, and for some reason I just couldn't get them to work the way I had hoped.

Be sure to pop on over and visit EMBELLISH... Ashley and her amazing DT never EVER fail to inspire.

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Framed with Love, Short and Sweet, Hello Again
Card:- Riding Hood Red, Riding Hood Red DSP, Very Vanilla

Ink:- Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette

Accessories:- Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Button, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Dimensionals.
