a color challenge

Embellish Magazine's stripes color challenge was the motivation for this Valentine's Day card. I got to ink up a new Inkadinkado stamp set - with Versamark for the background above the hearts (kinda forming stripes on their own ... get it?!), and Soft Suede for the sentment below the hearts. The challenge was to use kraft, brown, and purple, and to use stripes. The kind folkes at Embellish Mag even provided an inexpensive striped DP available to all by way of a quick PDF download. Thanx, folkes!

edited to add: hey! I just realized this card's colors are REAL close to the shell I was wearing in my blog photo opp!

stamps: Inkadinkado's Chelsea Sentiments, SU's Holiday & Wishes; paper: SU's Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Razzleberry, and Whisper White card stocks, Embellish Stripes by A New Design /Ashley Cannon Newell; ink: SU's soft suede; tools: Marvy Uchida's jumbo and super punches, Fiskar's threading water border punch
