Hope your day is fabulous...

Hi there!  My card today fulfills two challenges.  The colors come from the current challenge at Embellish Magazine.  I love how these colors go together.  The layout comes from today's sketch challenge at SCS. I took a different approach to the sketch.  Those hearts are supposed to be squares, but I was kind of in a hearts kind of mood.  The brown rectangle is embossed with the Birds and Swirls embossing folder and so is the orange heart.  I love how this makes the orange heart pop off the card a bit.  I sponged the edges of the kraft base with turquoise ink.  It's subtle, but it adds a nice finishing touch to the card.
Well, today is my last "live" post for the week.  I have posts scheduled for Paper Maniac Thursday, Frugal Friday, and for my Our Creative Corner post on Saturday.  We'll be in Gatlinburg, TN for a nice long weekend away with our kids and some old friends and what's sure to be some new friends too.  Take care!

Have a great day!!!
