Guest Designer at Colour Me...!

I've been invited to Guest Design at the new Colour Me...! blog for the month of February!  Yes...I'm just a LITTLE excited.  Colour Me...! is a challenge blog created by my friends (and former DT team mates at Dynamic Duos).   This will be a fun month, for sure!

The first challenge for February is CMCC #6.  We're using Wisteria Wonder and a neutral of your choice.
Gorgeous inspiration photo.  Makes you want to play along, right???

I used white as my neutral and made this Valentine card for my DH.  Not a traditional Valentine Day card, but I love it.

I started by stamping the "love you" sentiment in black ink, before running the card front through my Big Kick with a linen impression plate.  Yes, I DO like texture!  Next, came the time consuming part of this clean and simple card.  I die cut 8 "forever" pieces.  Three of Wisteria Wonder, five of White.  Then...I glued them together.   The Wisteria pieces became the sandwich filling, with white beneath and above.
By the time I was done, I was questioning my sanity.  Ack!  But, it was all worth it.  I'm very happy with the results.  Oh, I also stamped a few hearts in Wisteria...then swirled a dab of Wink of Stella over each of them.

I hope you'll click over to the Colour Me...! challenge blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration.
