Love a Good Color Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today was Spaghetti Dinner for my son's Boy Scout that he was a member of for many years. He earned Eagle Scout through the troop and they paid for his college tuition, so it was a good time to show our support. My hubby is now in the living room watching the Super Bowl and I can hear him yelling at the TV. Me...I am in the craft room enjoying some creative time. It is not always easy to find the time since I have been busy with school (setting up a STEM Lab and conducting Science lessons), going to the Y, tutoring, and shopping (found some fabulous deals at Dillard's last weekend). 

Today's project...
My friend asked me to make her a few Valentine cards for her family and I said, "of course". I wanted to use this new MFT heart stencil and after seeing the MFT color challenge I decided to blend the two together. I used Tim Holtz oxide inks (worn lipstick and wild violet) to create the background. Love the scattered hearts.

Here are the MFT colors...

LOVE is a MFT word die and the stamped sentiment underneath it is from Whimsical Designs (closed and no longer available). The scalloped circle is great as the focal point.

I cut a stitched rectangle with my Cuttlebug for this inside. I left it blank for a personal message.

Hope you have a great week.
Stay Creative,
