I combined two challenges for this card. The layout follows Freshly Made Sketches #119 (found here) and the color combo is from a new challenge called The Card Concept. (found here) I chose to use a Clean & Layered style for my card. I would venture to say that most of my cards fall in that particular style.
I dug this embossed pink heart out of my scrap drawer. It's probably been in there a couple of years! When I saw this sketch, for some reason I remembered it was there and decided to use it for my card. The first challenge for The Card Concept was to use a kraft, pink, vanilla, and espresso color combo. So pretty!
My card base is Early Espresso cardstock with a layer of Pink Pirouette. I stamped my sentiment using Early Espresso ink in the lower right corner. I used the generational stamping technique to add text to my Vintage Cream layer and deliberately made it uneven. Not splotchy, but some parts of the text are darker than others. I mounted the panel on Early Espresso and then adhered to the card at an angle like the sketch, trimming off the excess.
I cut a flag banner out of burlap fabric, glued it in place, and then put the pink heart over top. With the sentiment I chose, this could be a thank you card as well as a Valentine's Day card. Sweet and simple. :)
