Pink, Red, and White

Happy Thursday friends!  I don't typically like color challenges all that much but Stamp Anniething is having their first challenge so I thought I'd join it.  It is to use the colors Pink, Red, and White.  Well, I love that color combo so why not give it a go, right? 

I actually started off making this card by coloring the image.  I just chose some pink and red Copics hoping I could make it work for a card.  After I had her colored I saw this week's Freshly Made Sketch and decided I could make that work for what I wanted to do.  I'm still pretty new to the shaker card idea but I love this heart die from the Heart of Hearts Dies at Craftin Desert Divas so I knew I had to try it.  I've used SU! dazzling diamonds glitter paper (and boy is it glittery!) running it through my big shot with the die and then just pushing the little hearts that were cut by the die out and putting them aside.  I then found some acetate (I didn't think I had any!) and made the shaker.  I was going to originally use sequins and such but decided I would probably need to many so I thought a patterned paper and the cut out little hearts would work and it did!!  I added Kelly to the card and ran one of the arrows (from the same set linked above) through the big shot and placed it on top of the die.  I also added one of the die cut hearts to Kelly's shirt.  That panel is, of course, popped up and placed on the patterned paper and then both are on the base of SU!s shimmer paper. 

Inside I stamped the Jaded Blossom Valentine Luggage Tag image and then layered in red with the white base.  Perfect, I think!  Soooo...what do you think of my Valentine Card in Pink, Red, and White?
