Loonie Stamper Challenge #12 - Love Blooms

It took me a while to get to the Loonie Stamper Challenge #12 but I got it done today. The colors were picked by Maria. When I saw them I thought they were going to be easy....was I ever wrong. All the Loonie girls seemed to be able to get that red in there so I was thinking why is this so hard for me. I really had a hard time incorporating the red in with the Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet. But I finally thought..."think small" and decided to use one of my most favorite buttons!! I think I've only used one of them before on a card. I just love them so much it is hard to actually give them away (I'm such a bad horder!!). So, I'm sure this heart on the branch idea is something I saw in multiple places but I could never remember. In fact, it kinda reminds me of THIS tag I made a while ago. Thanks Maria for a great challenge.

This is beautiful, Donelda! And I'll let you in on a secret: I had such a tough time with my own challenge that I didn't finish my card until an hour before I posted it. Yep...picked the details @ 3weeks in advance and then regretted that red!!! I was cursing myself this week!!!

Hi D!! You took the words out of my mouth~~~that red was killer. I think that's why I couldn't stand my first card~~that red ribbon with all that Berry Sorbet....yucko. Your card is amazing. I have never seen the heart used for the leaves before. That is brilliant! I will have to remember that for Valentines day which seems like it will be here in no time. Seriously...is it really November??!!!!

What a cute card! I really like the ribbon you chose; it's a nice neutral against the brighter pinks and reds. Looks like you are already ready for Valentine's day!
