CAS Valentine

2013-DT
Limited crafting time this week as I added some hours at work.  I've gotten used to my part time schedule & I don't like working 4 days in a row--spoiled, I know!  I just remind myself it means a few more dollars to spend on stamping goodies!  PTI is celebrating their 6th anniversary & the first contest doesn't end until the 15th. I still needed to get a Valentine made for my brother & SIL & I found just the inspiration I needed from Maile's wonderful CAS card.  I finally opened my Background Basics: Medallions which I inked with Memento markers Lady Bug & Tangelo. I stamped on a Memory Box die cut heart.  The sentiment is by A Muse Artstamps which I inked with the Tangelo marker, colored the little heart with the Lady Bug marker & added Glossy Accents.  It was hard to decide what else to do, but I settled on some cascading pearls & gems in the same colors.  The heart is popped up with foam tape.  I'm thinking red & orange together make a non-traditional color scheme so I'm also entering this into the current Die Cut Divas challenge. Just realized this qualifies for the challenge at A Passion for Papertrey--new blog I recently discovered.  Thanks for coming by--I love reading what you think.

Hello Greta
You have made a gorgeous card. The colour palette is unique.
Orange; is a power colour.
Red is associated with a fiery heat, so together they relate a vibrant energy, and making it a CAS design against a White backdrop is stunning.
