Kraftyhands February 2016 Challenge

I hope you are all enjoying a nice weekend. I'm spending mine with my gorgeous little grandson. He has grown so much since I last saw him at Christmas.
Welcome to the first challenge at Kraftyhands for 2016. We hope you will all join in with us. The challenges will be a bit different this year. We have three notable differences:
- The themes each month will now be based on a colour and shape chip. 
- You must use at least one Kraftyhands product to be eligible to be chosen as a winner.
- The lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to use in the Kraftyhands shop.
A full set of the new rules are on the blog.

This month the theme is
"Hearts with Reds, Pinks and Creams"

As it's Valentine's Day next week I thought I'd use this theme for my lovely husband's card.

I started by printing four different papers from Kraftyhands Romantique Collection CD onto linen card. I used one of the papers, matted onto cream card, for the base then used hand drawn heart templates to cut out the three hearts and ivory coloured mats. These were placed on the card with some Cheery Lynn flourishes. All the edges were inked with Spun Sugar DI.

I printed some tickets from the CD and added them to each heart. I then created some dots with gold embossing powder.

I used X-cut dies to make a mini envelope and hearts and added a couple of tickets. I finished the card with some gems.

Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and to view the inspirational creations from my talented team mates. This challenge runs until the end of the month. Remember to be a follower of the challenge blog to qualify for entry.
