I Just Love You -----PP426 and SSC 197

January, 27, 2019

 It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!  I am excited that I could combine these two challenges this week! 

The fabulous PP sketch is by our talented hostess Jaydee!  The  beautiful SSC color combo made me smile!  I love these vibrant hues!   Oh, there are endless possibilities with both of these challenges.  We sure hope you will play along!

                  Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

My card is created on a white care base.  I made a lot of alcohol panels one day and decided to use one on today's card.  I used Yupo paper and several different inks.  The gold shimmer heart is cut using a die from Cherry Lynn Dies --Two of Hearts.  I stamped the sentiment from MFT Pure Innocence I Just Heart You stamp set in Versa Fine and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder.  I added a few sequins for shine.   

I had a strip left over from the main panel and added it to the inside of the card.  I added a sentiment from the MFT Sweet Nothings stamp set to complete the inside of my card.
