Kristina's Color Inspiration #27

Good day everyone! I am running low in cards to post, it's hard posting everyday! I need to get into my crafting room and get busy! I hope to. I did a lot of catching up on my desk pile this morning, so I deserve a little fun time!

Today's Kristina's challenge is for all the lovers of pink and red out there. I do love pink and red. I don't wear the colors too much. They usually don't work for me. However, I decorate with them. My daughters room is pink and I have lots of red throughout my house. I used some bits of scraps because that was part of the challenge, to use lots of different shades. I went with Rose Red, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose and Pink Passion and Pixie Pink did I really use that many? The designer papers made it easy. I don't think it would have been so pleasing to use the solid cardstock. I did a lot of paper piercing on this card, too. It doesn't show up so well, but I did pierce around the heart. The stitching I did on my machine and tried not to sew straight. For a veteran seamstress this is not so easy!

Once again, I hope you are enjoying my journey to finish all of the Color Inspiration Challenges. We'll see you again tomorrow!


  1. Fantastic card for Kristina's color challenge! I really like the stitched strips of designer papers with the pretty heart in the center!

  2. AWESOME EYE CANDY! I love the stitching and paper piercing. It's a rainbow of pinks and reds... and the saying at the bottom works perfect with your card!! Smiles Shelley... :)
