Happy St. Valentine's Day

A new biweekly challenge is open at Double Trouble Challenges. This is Sweet Color Challenge #103 and it runs through Sunday evening, February 20, 2022. Our challenge has three "Things":

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker wants to see projects made from at least three of six colors. These six colors are commonly found in a bag of gumdrops or candy hearts - pink, yellow, lavender, white, orange, and green. 

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare is challenging you to link up with Inspiration Station Challenge #23. You will earn one chance in our random draw so be sure to check out the guidelines.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister has added a twist by asking you to add at least one heart to your project and she will add one chance for you in our random draw.

My card includes four of the six colors - pink, yellow, green, and white and has 19 hearts (18 of which were cut in half by the die). I adhered the yellow and green shapes to a panel of white cardstock. The large heart and the sentiment were added with foam tape and the 36 half-heart pieces were inlaid. I had some tiny white resin hearts so added those as well. The entire panel was added to a card base and the inside was decorated with a few small die-cut hearts.

I also decided to participate in a few other challenges. Please visit their blogs and join their challenges!

We welcome you to join in our challenge fun at DTC103 and Inspiration Station #23.

Stamp: None (computer-generated sentiment)
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Basic White, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzaz & Barely Banana
