CR84FN11: Red, Kraft, Brown

Super quick post this evening as I had some fun playing this afternoon with my daughter in the studio.  I had a few challenges I wanted to play this week.

I pulled out an old favorite set, Sweet Hearts, from Clear & Simple Stamps.  I always seem to grab this one whenever I'm working on a Valentine card of anything with a red combo, I just think it's perfect!


This card was for the CR84FN challenge using Kraft, Red and Brown.  I love this color combination, then again I love anything with kraft & brown!!!

I kept some of the hearts on this plain, just didn't want to color them as I like it that way.  I watercolored the other ones and some I used some Xmas Red stickles on.    The circle was stamped with the hearts background stamp from the set in white.

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #100 for this, can you believe she's at 100 already??  I don't always get to play each week, but I love seeing what Karen creates!

Hope you all had a nice weekend, I know we are finally warming up here after the big snow storm last week so I'm looking forward to some temperatures over 30 degrees.

Card details:
Stamps: Sweet Hearts from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Kraft Like a Rockstar, Dare to be a Diva Red, Dish all the Dirt Brown
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Dare to be a Diva Red
Embellishments: Xmas Red Stickles, Scallop border punch, Aquapainter, distressing tool
