ColourQ - CQC #226

City Crafter Challenge - CCCB Week 196 Love Story -  Include a Valentine theme or the word Story

CAS-ual Fridays - Over The Edge, CFC127

I used heat embossing, stamping and stitching to create this card.

Oh, this one was fun.  Actually, it was fun once I figured out where to use each color.  The first attempt ended up in the waste basket.  :(

I'm usually not a big fan of the color pink.  But I was really drawn to the color challenge at ColourQ.  I'm so glad I gave it a try!   I heat embossed first, then stamped the solid images.  Next the stitching, then the sentiment banner.  Oh, and a bit of sponging around the edges of the focal panel.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
